Washington, DC: While the streets near Capitol Hill were quiet due to the government shutdown, but the STAR conference at the Capitol Liaison Hotel was abuzz with excitement about the high-quality lineup for the Society for the Technological Advancement of Reporting’s Annual Convention October 3-5. Paradigm Court Reporting & Captioning’s president and STAR board member Jan Ballman and friend and fellow agency owner Lisa DiMonte of DC-based Planet Depos were the conference co-chairs and planned a stellar cast of speakers for the 3-day event.
A few of the highlights included Friday’s keynote author Alan Gregerman discussed the importance of interpersonal awareness; attendees got great “impeccability” tips from Steve Dorfman, a fantastic panel of DC litigators shared their court reporting preferences, and Lori Saitz discussed appreciation and gratitude and how it can grow your business.
STAR’s mission is to provide its 700+ members training, networking opportunities, and the latest and greatest technologies and advancements in the court reporting profession.
