2021 PCRID Annual Conference

December 10th-12th

Conference Theme: "Unite"
Professional Development: 1.2 CEUs

Due to COVID-19, this year's conference will be hosted virtually through Zoom.

Our Conference Theme

The intention of the 2021 PCRID Annual Conference, "Unite" is to create space for better understanding of the identities and experiences that make our field rich in diversity. Together, we will take a close look at how we communicate, make choices, and reflect on how our individual choices can effectively create meaningful change and positive impact.

This year's conference consists of 2 panel discussions and 7 workshops presenting on the areas of empathy, identity, -isms, reframing interpreter skillsets, matching client needs, and effectively working in Deaf-Hearing teams. 

Join us as we take the interpreter profession to the next level as a community.
