Amend Article VI, Meeting of Members, Section 1, Annual Conference
by adding a new sub-section C. that reads as follows:
This constitutes 90 days notice of intent to vote via mail referendum.
IF ADOPTED WILL READ
PCRID will recruit at least ten (10) Deaf community members as attendees with registration costs waived to each annual, to promote greater Deaf community engagement with PCRID. The membership will engage in dialogues with stakeholders about issues of concern to those stakeholders. **(biennial conference-see AC2017.01)
Proposed by: Juniper Sussman & Jamie Yost
When we gather as interpreters, we engage in discussions and make decisions that impact Deaf people/consumers, unfortunately these activities often take place without the experience, input and wisdom of Deaf people. In order to insure that we as a community do not perpetuate this dynamic (audist behavior) this motion helps to address this.These stakeholders, will be asked to represent the community and must represent the diversity within.
