Opportunity to support Thanksgiving at the Sanderson Community Center of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing

Hello everyone! We have been given an opportunity to help serve and/or donate to an upcoming event for our Deaf, Hard of Hearing and DeafBlind community members.  See below for the message and links:

“I am so excited about this and so grateful that you are interested in sponsoring this upcoming FIRST Annual Community Thanksgiving Gathering on Nov. 25th hosted by Sanderson Community Center of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing!

As you know, a high number of our Deaf, hard of hearing and DeafBlind community members either are alone, isolated from their family members due to communication access limitations during holidays. Research shows that the rate of suicides are highest during the holidays due to people being alone or isolated. This shows how important it is for us to provide an inclusive place for all to gather and celebrate this holiday.

The plan is to host this from 11 am to 1 pm at Sanderson Center on Nov. 25th with volunteers to help serve, etc. We have set up a registration deadline for this by Nov. 19th and it will be limited to 50 people at the most and by Nov. 19th, I should have an exact # of how many people will be coming.

We are requesting that the donations be either as gift cards to Wal-Mart or WinCo OR buy the specific items requested and deliver to us by Nov. 24th. The reason we are requesting either gift cards or food purchases be brought to us is due to the red tape under State of Utah related to purchasing food. We would face a lot of roadblocks in purchasing food and this is where we really need you!  The estimated cost of all the food will be almost $750 so every bit that is donated would be greatly appreciated!

Deadlines for donations along with volunteering (serve or make): November 15th

Feel free to call, email or text me if you have any questions about this.

Looking forward to your reply.

UTRID Membership Survey

Greetings from the UTRID President!

Hello beautiful members of UTRID! I’m Teddi von Pingel, the new UTRID President for the upcoming 2 years. I wanted to take this opportunity to check in with you and learn more about your needs, your goals, and how we as the UTRID board can change and improve to help you maximize your membership benefits.

 

The survey is linked below and may take you 10-15 minutes to complete.  The survey doesn’t require you to fill out your name and email address, but we hope you will include it and also be honest with your feedback and needs. 

Survey responses are due October 1, however, if you complete the survey by 9/29 (NEW DEADLINE), all responses will be entered into a drawing for a cool prize from me or the UTRID board. (Don’t forget to include your name and/or email).

Your feedback is important to us! We can’t continue to run our UTRID organization without understanding your needs.  Kimm, as past president of UTRID for 5 years, worked hard to build interpreter unity and meet your needs.  Our hope is to continue building on that foundation as we grow our membership and meet member needs for  our Utah interpreters.   We welcome all ideas and feedback.

We look forward to getting your feedback.  Have a great day!

Is It Me or You? Recognizing the Demands of Crucial Interpreting Moments.

Jed Patton (1)

Saturday June 13th 10am-Noon

Zoom Workshop. Meeting ID and password will be sent via email 1 day prior to workshop.

Is It Me or You? Recognizing the Demands of Crucial Interpreting Moments.

Tempers are hot, the client isn’t satisfied, and I feel discombobulated! How to take accountability and conversational skills and apply them to my interpreting work. This workshop will take the concepts learned in Crucial Accountability and Conversations and adapt them to working with clients as an ASL interpreter. When to look inward for the solution or how to communicate what I see to continue effective communication. Jed Patton who is an interpreter for over 15 years and a certified trainer for Crucial Conversations, will explore those difficult interpreting moments and tools we have to navigate when an assignment can get a little hairy. Through guided discussions we will implement the concepts into real world situations. By completing the workshop you will be better prepared to recognize the part you play in situations and in a caring way address the crucial issues.

Purchase your ticket (you must be logged into your member account to see the reduced price). After payment is confirmed you will receive your ticket (your payment receipt can also serve as your ticket for admittance).
