We're stronger together.
The BCSRA was created by shorthand reporters for shorthand reporters. It's a non-profit run by volunteers -- stenographers just like you.

Join the BCSRA as a full participating member to enjoy the following benefits.
The benefits list is always growing, so check back regularly.

Full participating members have access to a BC-wide job board and can post availability or reply to firms or other reporters looking for coverage.
Your BCSRA membership number, certificate, and digital badge will put lawyers' minds at ease knowing you're a BCSRA-approved Official Reporter.
