Professional Development Workshop – First of 2022!

Happy New Year!  We are starting this year’s UTRID Professional Development offering with “Workshop Proposals: Fizzle or Flame” facilitated by Anita Nelson-Julander, Sarah Hemmert, and Teddi von Pingel.  This workshop was rescheduled in 2021 and is a great way to learn how everyone can contribute to the experiences and knowledge of UTRID workshops.  The Zoom link for the workshop will be sent out to all registered participants the day before the event.
 
We look forward to seeing you there!

Call for interpreters – Sundance Film Festival

Trenton Marsh was contacted by the accessibility coordinator/manager of Sundance Film Festival and they expressed interest in having BIPOC interpreters at the festival for several reasons.  They are also looking for interpreters with other areas of expertise, as well as CDIs.
Laura Benge, the accessibility manager asked for help in passing along a letter to UTRID members.  More information can be found in this Google Doc:
Feel free to share with interpreter friends!
Happy Holidays to all!
