Conference Delivery Format

Due to precautionary occupancy limitations imposed in the interest of public safety, UTRID’S 2021 A.R.T IS NEVER ENDING Conference will no longer offer tickets for face-to-face attendance. With the exception of an outdoor socially-distanced networking event, all conference proceedings will be held virtually through video conferencing software. Conference proceedings and workshops 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 will follow a linear schedule to provide stable live streaming. Hopefully, this online 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!

UTRID Business Meeting

As previously planned, the UTRID Business Meeting will be held shortly after Noon on Saturday, Aug. 7th. 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 and presentations have been postponed until further notice.

Alternative to Traditional Banquet

Instead of a traditional banquet, the conference will include an additional opportunity for continuing education credit in an interactive virtual activity—“Escape 2020.”

Alternative Funding Opportunities

The Planning Committee is cognizant of the community’s growing financial concerns in recent months. We invite those who are able 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 2021 A.R.T IS NEVER ENDING fund. Practitioners encountering financial adversities in the pursuit of professional development activities should consider utilizing UTRID’s Scholarship offerings.

Thank you for your continued interest and patience as the conference has adapted amidst such uncertain times. Please direct questions to Conference Chair Deborah McHenry at conferencechair.utrid@gmail.com.
