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. 

Target Audience:

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

COVID Protocol: (The following information may be updated)

All participants are required to adhere to ECC's COVID protocol, requiring masks to be properly worn indoors regardless of vaccination status. At entry screening points, visitors must show their vaccination card or a CLIA-approved negative COVID test taken within 72 hours of their visit. If they are unable to provide CLIA-approved lab results they will need to take a test at the ECC testing center.
