So if you are interested in giving back to your profession, working with computers and the internet, our assisting the community in organizing and planning workshops, we have the opportunity you are looking for.
In anticipation of TSID Conference 2012 to be inclusive of all interpreters, NCTRID & TAID will be holding a Community Forum May 12th from 1-3pm. We need youthere to discuss issues pertaining to interpreters in the DFW and surrounding areas. The discussions and topics provided by local interpreters will be brought back to the TSID forum scheduled on Friday June 22nd at the conference.This is our opportunity to have a positive effect on the communities we serve as well as lead the TSID board in a direction that works for us locally.
We have several prizes lined up to be awarded during the day. For starters NCTRID is hosting a raffle for a TSID Conference Ticket for the cost of $5.00.
