NCC Supports NCSER with Conference Planning, Logistics, and Transcription Services

On November 14, NCC was pleased to support the Department of Education’s (ED) National Center for Special Education Research (NCSER) technical working group meeting, entitled “Improving Outcomes for Adolescents with Disabilities.” Team members from our Conference and Peer Review Management (CPRM) Division provided pre-event and on-site logistical and administrative support at the Institute of Education Sciences headquarters in Washington, D.C. In addition, an associate from our Multimedia Solutions Division attended and recorded the proceedings in order to facilitate our provision of verbatim transcription service. This was the first event in which NCC supported NCSER since being awarded a five-year contract in September.

Our conference planners sent logistics documents to participants and produced meeting materials which included agenda sheets, tent cards, and name badges using NCSER’s design preferences. Additionally, we distributed meeting packets for each attendee comprised of participant bios, presentations, and other pertinent information.

On the day of the event, our staff members set up the meeting room to meet NCSER’s specifications and placed clear signage around the facility to guide participants. By conducting on-site registration and fielding logistical and administrative questions from meeting attendees, our support team ensured NCSER team members and invited guests could focus on a critical and productive discussion, which was reflected in the high quality transcript we completed within seven days of the meeting.

NCC was proud to provide NCSER with conference and logistics support and transcription services for this important meeting. We stand with NCSER in their mission to sponsor research that increases knowledge and understanding of children with disabilities to improve education and development. NCC is privileged to have the opportunity to create a better experience for this venerable organization’s staff and meeting participants in the years to come.
