Raffle Tickets for Referrals
Because this is a virtual event, we can reach reporters all over the country and all over the world, but we need your help! If you're a current VCRA member, tell non-members about the Virtual Education Day. If they register for the event and list you as having referred them, you'll receive one free raffle ticket. There's no limit to the amount of free raffle tickets you can receive, so refer as many people as you can!
Instructions: If you were referred by a VCRA member, type their name in the "Referred By" box on the registration form.
Note: To qualify for free raffle tickets, you must be a current VCRA member, and the person you refer must be a non-member. You cannot receive free raffle tickets for referring a current VCRA member. The VCRA member making the referral does not need to attend the Education Day to receive a free raffle ticket.

She is in her sixth decade of teaching – with more than 40 of those years in the field of court reporting. As a reporting instructor, she has taught from the theory level through the exit speeds as well as all manner of English courses – both on campus in a bricks-and-mortar school and online.
She has presented, under the auspices of NCRA and state court reporting organizations, over 300 seminars for reporters on English-related topics as well as seminars for teachers and students.
Court Reporting: Bad Grammar/Good Punctuation, her best-selling reference text, and the Workbook that accompanies it are available at www.margieholdscourt.com.

She has also written a drill book series for improving accuracy: Practice Really DOES Make Perfect.
Her latest book, All Things English, is a bit of a departure from the others. It is one vocab word, one spelling word, one idiom, one word pair, and one fun English fact each day for 120 days.
