Welcome

This is your region

NAI Sunny Southeast Region is a group of interpreters from Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virgin Islands.

We believe that improving our interpretive skills will help us to reach our professional goals. The region selects a board that works hard to make sure that the NAI members have all they need for their professional organization at a regional level.

The biggest event of the year is our Annual Regional Workshop which is hosted at different locations every year. The 2021 workshop will be hosted virtually, April 12-14, 2021.

Other ways for interpreters to stay in touch and share experiences are the Sunny Southeast Facebook group and our blog.

We are always looking for people to get involved with NAI and help us improve this organization. If you would like to help us please contact us.

Do you have photos from the Regional Workshop? Please send them to the webmaster if you’re willing to share them on our website, and also feel free to share them in the Sunny Southeast Facebook group.

I’ve … Continue reading Pivot!!!

Interpret sites from a historical perspective while keeping pace with today’s values. Okay, those all fit the mold of what you might expect an interpreter … Continue reading Technology and Interpretation: Making Your Case
