UIP 30th Celebration: May 6th from 7-9pm

Let’s Celebrate with UIP – it’s their 30th Anniversary!  Join us on Friday May 6th from 7-9pm at the Sanderson Community Center! (See the flyer below)

A personal invitation from Trenton, the UIP Program Manager

“UTRID and its predecessor, URID have been a tremendous part of the history of interpreting here in Utah.  Established in 1968, URID was one of the early chapters of RID and was instrumental along with UAD in recognizing the needs of our community: the need for qualified interpreters, the need for training of interpreters, supporting the goals of passing certification laws, etc.  Needless to say- our state would not be where it is in regards to interpreting without UTRID and UAD along with UIP!

We would love for you all to come to our celebration of interpreting in Utah next Friday, May 6th from 7-9 pm.  I’m attaching a flyer for distribution to the UTRID board and membership.

We would love it if you could bring any pictures or documents you may have and share your stories!:) If you have pictures, please scan and send to tmarsh@utah.gov.

If you have any questions, please let us know!:)”

– Trenton Marsh, UIP Program Manager

– Teddi Von Pingel, UTRID President

2022 Silent Weekend Update

Hello Interpreting Friends!

I wanted to keep you posted on what is happening with Silent Weekend.

We sent out a survey asking for your interest and response related to Silent Weekend and we really appreciate your input. Thank you!

I’ve said several times lately, “COVID ruins everything!” It kind of got the better of Silent Weekend for this year. Long story, but it looks like we are starting to pull out of the COVID nightmare. *fingers crossed*

We as the UTRID board, and I as the Silent Weekend chair have evaluated the UTRID offerings. We LOVE our conferences and we LOVE being with you at Silent Weekend. We want to be intentional about supporting and offering both events. We have a big conference coming in the Fall so we are going to focus our efforts there for now. AND we are going to focus on planning an amazing Silent Weekend for next Spring (2023).

We look forward to seeing you face to face and sharing hugs soon!

Thank you for all of your support!
Teresa Edwards
Silent Weekend Chair, UTRID

Participants will network with working professionals and other students.
