Hello, wonderful members of UTRID. Thank you for reading this post. My name is Tanner Vance, and I am the new president of UTRID.
UTRID’s purpose is to support you and the membership by providing professional development opportunities to benefit the Interpreting community and the deaf community as we enrich our professional abilities. The 2023–2025 board will soon gather for our annual board retreat, where we will plan for 2024, and we want to know your thoughts. We want your feedback regardless of whether you are Deaf, hearing, a certified interpreter, a novice interpreter, a student or CDI, or someone just starting your practice. We want your feedback, please.
UTRID has a history of impact throughout our state and is a recognized Affiliate Chapter nationally. The 2023 board wants to continue this legacy and growth, which requires your feedback. We believe striving to thrive is vital, and we do that as an organization by recognizing your needs (past, present, and future), how they have changed, and what new needs have become apparent so we can adapt our programming to benefit you. Before we can do this, however, we have to collect your input. This is where we ask for your help.
We’ve created a Google form, which is linked here. Filling the survey out will take about 10 to 15 minutes (15 max). The form will close in two weeks on Sat. November 11 at 10 PM. If you submit it before next Sat. November 4 at 10 PM, you may enter a three-winner prize drawing for a free ticket for the annual conference or a workshop next year. It will be a 2 1/2 day conference as opposed to last year’s 1 1/2 mini conference. It will be a fun-filled, excellent time!
I hope you can take the time to send in your thoughts. Your submission will be of value to us as we plan for next year, and you as our events can better match your needs. I look forward to reading your responses. Thank you and have a great day!
