We are just a few days from the deadlines for submitting nominations for the region’s awards, and applications for the scholarships. The awards are an important way to recognize interpreters and leaders in out region, so don’t be shy about recommending someone you feel is deserving, it only takes a couple minutes to fill out and submit the form.
I think it is especially important to get students and young interpreters to apply for the scholarships. Regional workshops are so much fun and so beneficial professionally that I really think once we get someone to the workshop we’ve got them for life. In other words, these scholarships are something of a marketing tool. So if you get the chance, talk up NAI, the region, and the scholarship program to any young interpreters or students you know!
Details on requirements, procedures, and the necessary forms are available on the workshop tab of this site. Thanks!
