CALL FOR PRESENTERS
The Virginia Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf Conference Committee is currently seeking enthusiastic, dynamic, and effective presenters for the 2016 Conference "Forward Together", June 24-26, 2016 in Richmond, VA. Special consideration will be given to those presenters who are willing to present two or more times on the same or different topic(s).
Proposed sessions will be selected based on the information you provide. Be creative! Since we try to offer new sessions each year, please note that if you have previously presented and have a new topic we encourage you to apply.
Although all workshop topics will be considered, the membership have expressed particular interest in:
Ethical decision making
Interpreting skills development
Mental health interpreting

POSTPONED (will be rescheduled)
WRAP is the Wellness Recovery Action Plan that can be utilized to maintain physical and mental wellness. Interpreters can develop their own plan to keep themselves physically and mentally well in their professional and personal lives. Self-monitoring is a large aspect of WRAP and being able to identify things such as fatigue (mental and physical), compassion fatigue, and other signs of negative symptoms you might experience can prevent them from becoming overwhelming.
The workshop will be led by CW Tillman and Beth Klein and will be held at NVRC, 3951 Pender Ave, Fairfax, VA 22030. It will be held on August 15 from 6 pm - 9 pm and August 16th from 9 am - 5 pm. Lunch and snacks will be provided. 1.0 CEU’s are offered and sponsored by VRID.
Early bird registration is $90 and is through August 1st.
After August 1st regular registration is $100.
WRAP will be taught in spoken English.
