Being Intentional

The intention of the 2019 PCRID Annual Conference, "Be Intentional!" is discovering how to effectively create meaningful change and positive impact. Together, we will take a close look at how we communicate, make choices, and take actions. Join us as we take the interpreter profession to the next level as a community.
