2020 VISION Conference | COVID-19 Contingency Plan

[Published June 3rd, 2020]

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and recent announcements from the Governor’s Office, the UTRID Conference Planning Committee is excited to release updated information regarding this summer’s 2020 Vision conference. 

Conference Delivery Format

This year’s conference proceedings will be delivered in a simultaneous online/face-to-face format. In-person attendance will be limited according to the discretion of the Planning Committee and in compliance with contemporary state-mandated gathering guidelines. Physical admittance will be granted on a first come first served basis when requested in participants’ registration paperwork. Conference proceedings, workshops, and activities will be accessible to virtual participants via moderated, interactive live-streaming technology. Unlike past conferences that have featured cafeteria-style schedules, this year’s conference schedule will follow a linear schedule to provide stable live streaming. Hopefully, this dual-delivery approach will enable practitioners from throughout the state and the greater region to join the conference this year. Visit the conference registration page to procure your ticket!

Business Meeting & Awards Ceremony

As previously planned, both the UTRID Business Meeting and Awards Ceremony will be held. The presentation of awards and elections for available positions on the Board of Directors will be conducted virtually. Board positions on the ballot include Vice President, Treasurer, UAD Liaison, Conference Chair, and Professional Development members-at-large. Additional information regarding nominations and elections may be viewed here. Award nominations close Aug. 1st; visit this page for details.

Alternative to Traditional Banquet

Historically food and banquet attendance has been included in the cost of admission. Due to social distancing measures and the dual delivery model of this year’s conference, participants will be responsible for their own dietary arrangements. Instead of a traditional banquet, the conference may offer an additional opportunity for continuing education credit in the form of an interactive virtual activity.

CEH/CEUs & Curriculum

Participants enroll in the opportunity to earn 15 CEHs (1.5 CEUs) by attending workshops and presentations at the conference. Specific details regarding presenters and curriculum are forthcoming. 

Alternative Funding Opportunities

The Planning Committee is cognizant of the community’s varying financial concerns in these unusual times. Those who can are invited to sponsor a fellow interpreter’s admission to the conference; donations may be credited to a specific interpreter or contributed to the Sponsor an Interpreter 2020 Vision fund. Practitioners encountering financial adversities in the pursuit of professional development activities should consider utilizing UTRID’s Scholarship offerings

The committee thanks you for your interest and patience in recent months while we have investigated creative solutions for hosting the conference in such uncertain times. Please direct questions to Conference Chair Deborah McHenry at conferencechair.utrid@gmail.com.

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.
