Does anyone know whether the NVRA has preapproved awards of CEs for either MyRealtimeCoach or EV360 subscription/progress?

I've received our first donation for our auction being held at our Myrtle Beach convention! This is a 20×20 original canvas painting titled "After All These Years" by artist Mimi Maki. This was donated by the artist.

Just saw this on my FB feed. Interesting. If this actually works I could see if useful to a court reporter when someone is reading long passages from exhibits.

Ever since I installed the most recent Windows update this week, Dragon has been acting up. When I open Dragon by itself to do corrections, it's okay for a few minutes, and then it crashes or closes. Has anyone else noticed this or do I just need to reinstall Dragon?

I purchased medical insurance through the NVRA member discount program. Decent coverage. And a couple hundred cheaper a month than my other quotes. It's effective January 1. So , I'll review once I get a chance to use it.
