CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION PLANNING UNDERWAY

Calling all entertainers!

OCRA Members and Annual Conference attendees:

The Ohio Court Reporters Association is 100 years old and it's time to celebrate!  The theme for the President’s Saturday Night Reception is:  “Centennial Celebration-Through the Decades.”

Last year's live musical performances were a great success and we'd like to carry that forward.  We are going to have several of our members sing a song (karaoke style) from each decade that OCRA has been in existence (1920-2020).  Please consider getting up there and giving us your best from your chosen decade.  It will be great fun for all!  

The songs and order of performance will be prearranged, so submit your song request and the decade you are representing before March 15th to Tim Meinke at meinke.timothy@gmail.com

As we celebrate 100 years of OCRA in 2020, consider adding a sponsorship to your registration to assist OCRA in inviting all of Ohio's movers and shakers who have made OCRA and our profession what it is today to the Saturday Night President's Reception.

And be sure to come dressed for the Saturday Night Reception in your favorite decade's attire.  From the flappers of the 1920s to the rock bands and high hair of the 1980s, your options are unlimited!
