There shall be an organization called the Nebraska Official Court Reporters Association, which shall consist of all official court reporters. This organization shall have as its purpose the improvement of court reporting in this state, by providing a forum for the exchange of ideas and to educate all reporters to more adequately and expeditiously handle the reporting needs of this state. The association shall adopt bylaws consistent with these rules, providing for the election of a president and such other officers as the association determines appropriate. The association shall have at least one meeting per year, which shall serve as an education seminar as provided by Judicial Branch Education, unless such annual meeting is canceled or suspended by order or direction of the Nebraska Supreme Court.
If the judge who appointed the reporter requires the presence of an official court reporter during the time of the educational seminar, a substitute may be designated to replace the official court reporter while attending the seminar. This shall be at state expense.
