work, and ally with them, including interpreters, Support Service Providers, educators, parents,

Board Meetings Open to All

SCRID holds open board meetings on a monthly basis and we want to hear from you! During board meetings we're setting 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!

Coronavirus Vaccine Information

As coronavirus vaccines are being distributed, SCRID is committed to ensuring that interpreters are informed and aware of when and how they may get a vaccine. For an interpreter vaccination timeline and registration instructions please click here.

Catastrophic Need Fund

This fund was established under SCRID with the goal of supporting interpreters during difficult times.

Over the years, SCRID has seen several of our own interpreters come upon hard times. Some from accidents, some from illness, but all “catastrophic” financially. It is especially difficult for freelance interpreters, whether part-time or full-time, who typically do not receive sick pay or worker’s compensation benefits.

In order to address these unfortunate and unforeseeable situations and to be able to assist SCRID members in need in some small measure, SCRID has established a fund whereby interpreters in serious need may request and receive, as available, financial assistance.

Fund is open for donation and application. For more information, click here.
