OCTOBER: The 6th InterpretAmerica Summit to Take Place in Washington, D.C., October 30, 2017

The InterpretAmerica Summit, our sixth installment, is headed back to Washington, D.C., the place where it all began.  

Much has changed for the better since we launched the InterpretAmerica Summit in the U.S. capital in 2010, And just in time. Because we all know that interpreting is in full flux. We now ride the rough waters that were just on the horizon during our first Summit in 2010. 

Our field is engaged in a heated debate about how to face these changes. We see growing mistrust, anger and frustration between interpreters and those who hire them. In short, the fundamental need for a profession-wide forum has not changed. 

We'll be changing things up for InterpretAmerica 6. Our format will be work-intensive. We want to address the difficult issues with people from all sides of the profession who can help make a difference. So, mark your calendars and keep an eye on the InterpretAmerica website for more information in the coming months.
