Terp Talk: Mentoring Moments with Eastern NCRID
Meet your Eastern NCRID regional committee! Our collective experiences include educational interpreting, community freelance interpreting, owning and operating interpreting agencies, religious interpreting, and ITP education. This diverse committee is comprised of a newly certified interpreter and seasoned interpreters with 20-35 years of experience. “Mentoring Moments with Eastern NCRID” Terp Talk will be facilitated by the Chair of the committee, Renee J. Moore. We will discuss the organizational branches of RID/NCRID/Eastern NCRID, how the organization influences the interpreting profession, and how participants can become an agent of change in the profession. Participants will have the opportunity of a Q & A segment with the Committee panel. Committee members are: Renee J. Moore, Jessica Locke, Susan Runyon, Debbie Batts, Theresa Lott, Delia Liuzza, and Michelle Teague.
Interpreting Students and interpreters of all backgrounds, experiences, and certifications are encouraged to attend.
Terp Talks are conducted in a roundtable format of dialogue and facilitated learning opportunities. These sessions are hosted by the Eastern regional committee of NCRID. Terp Talks address a wide range of topics related to interpreting, Deaf culture, and shared interest to ultimately improve the quality of interpreting services provided to Deaf and Hearing consumers. These sessions strive to also enhance the camaraderie among professional interpreters, interpreting students, and Deaf and Hearing consumers
