Event Description:
Many of us, when confronted with the call to enter volunteer leadership, instinctively take several steps back. There’s a common belief that we don’t know how to lead. Yet, if we look back on our lives we can often identify multiple examples of courageous leadership enacted with our own hands. In this workshop participants will be encouraged to consider the leadership skills they already have, and how those talents can be employed organizationally for the benefit of the profession and the communities we serve.

Participants will:
Explain in their own words what leadership means personally and explain the relevance of such in organizational leadership.
Describe the challenges and obstacles to effective leadership, both personally and organizationally.
Explain the role of leadership in our affiliate chapter and determine one way to engage more actively as a leader. 


The vast majority of registrants have expressed a preference for engaging this training remotely, given current rising costs of inflation and gas, concern over an impending spike in illness numbers as the seasons change, and other rationale. We've listened! This training will be offered online via zoom rather than in person. Please use the link above for zoom registration and to receive your meeting link.

Target Audience:

Practitioners, students, educators, mentors, and others invested in the profession of sign language interpretation.


FREE!!! SCRID will be covering the cost of this workshop in full. We recognize the additional difficulties many of us are facing financially and desire to be responsive to that. Additionally, this is an election year for SCRID... we'd love to see tons of you here and ready to consider how you are more prepared and qualified to step into a leadership role than you think!
