Agren Blando Court Reporting

Please join me in remembering Alan Agren, RPR, CMRS, and celebrating his life. Alan began his esteemed court reporting career after graduating from East High School in Denver in 1958 and then attending the Barnes School of Commerce and the Academy of Steno Arts. He was certified as a court reporter in June 1961. His reporting career was interrupted from 1962 to 1968 when he served in the U.S. Air Force, being honorably discharged in 1968, at which time Alan returned to Colorado and became a court reporter and firm owner.

Over the course of his career, Alan was an owner and co-owner of several firms, finally retiring from Agren Blando Court Reporting & Videography in 2012. Alan was a member of the National Court Reporters Association and served on its Board of Directors in the early 1990s. In 1990, Alan was named a Fellow of the Academy of Professional Reporters. His roles for the Colorado Court Reporters Association were many. Alan first served as a board member in 1966. In 1982, he served as vice president, followed by president elect in 1983 and president in 1984. In 1993, Alan received the Colorado Court Reporters Association’s Distinguished Service Award. He served as a mentor, role model, and leader in the court reporting community. He was a pioneer in videoconferencing and was the first to bring this service to Denver.

Yes, Alan had a life beyond court reporting. He leaves behind his wife, Patty, who tells me, “Alan was an avid traveler, reader, and movie-goer. He loved Walkers Shortbread cookies, making rugs, and collecting pens, art, and Tiffany lamps.” As I can personally attest, he also enjoyed an occasional poker game.
