Board Meetings Open to All

SCRID holds quarterly open board meetings and we want to hear from you! During board meetings we set aside time that gives members the opportunity to raise discussion points on anything relevant to SCRID and our interpreting profession.

What questions do you have related to interpreting that would be beneficial to discuss as a community?

What would you like to see from SCRID that would raise its relevance to you and our local profession?

This is opportunity for members to get involved and create the relevant organization we all desire!
