This is the Deaf Interpreters' opportunity to make the most out of this experience by participating fully in the dialogue with peers and colleagues.

This conference brings together very experienced Deaf Interpreters with many years of work behind them as well as newer Deaf Interpreters that are coming into the field.

The interactions we will have will show how Deaf interpreters should be regarded in terms of what we bring to the task.

The work that we do is largely unrecognized.

Through our time together here, you'll have new tools to use to bring back to your communities and educate individuals on the distinctions and higher regard for skills we bring to this field.
