Do I need my writer for the conference?
In general, bringing your steno writer is totally up to you. That being said, we allow our presenters to make the determination of writers being option, necessary, suggested or not necessary.
Our conference detail page will always list your presenter's writer recommendation. You can find that page by placing your mouse over the CONFERENCE button at the top of any page on our site, then choosing CURRENT CONFERENCE from the menu that drops down. From there just scroll down the list of classes - you'll find the writer recommendation in bold letters just under the number of CEUs listed for each class. If you don't see a writer recommendation listed it means that your writer is either completely optional or not necessary at all.
