SCRID holds regular 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.
This is opportunity for members to get involved and create the relevant organization we all desire!
*** SCRID Board Meetings will switch to Quarterly Meetings (Aug ‘22, Nov ‘22; Feb ‘23, May ‘23) ***

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.
Click here for more information about the Catastrophic Need Fund.
It is currently open for donation and application.
