Court Reporters Board of California

A few weeks ago I got invited by David E. Brown, the Asst. Executive Officer of the Court Reporters Board of California to fly to Sacramento to assist the CRB in an exam workshop.  I have had the opportunity a number of times (many of which I've blogged about) to assist the Board.  It's always a great experience to be able to do this sort of thing.  I love being able to give back to the court reporting profession.  I love taking road trips.  (Actually they fly me to Sacramento.  So it's more of an air trip!)

What Will I Be Doing?
The purpose of the workshop is to review and modify tasks and knowledge statements developed from interviews conducted with SMEs.  In addition, participants will write new task and knowledge statements and perform a linkage of the task and knowledge statements.   The occupational analysis serves as the blueprint for all CSR tests.  It is  updated every 5-7 years as required by federal law.  The development of this exam document and defining the knowledges and skills is one of the most critical components to our process. 

Where Will I Be Eating?
Chops Restaurant, of course!

Update: I had a great time working with the Board this time. I have the following snapshot of us eating at Malabar Restaurant. I didn`t get a chance to go to Chops, but there`s always next time.

I`m trying to contact a former CR Roommate of mine from the early 1960`s in Minneapolis, MN, named Phillip Stubb. He reported in Ventura County, I think, and operated a CR School named Pacific something or other. Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated. Thanks
