Find out the perspectives of interpreting stakeholders regarding what it means to be professional as an interpreter. A panel will be assembled of area hiring entities and interpreter colleagues to discuss the state of professionalism in the interpreting field. What do interpreting managers expect from us? What do our clients expect from us? What do our interpreting colleagues expect from us? Does “professional” behavior look different dependent upon the setting? We will discuss these questions and many more as well as how we can justify our actions through the Code of Professional Conduct.
Come visit a variety of booths to learn about interpreting, educational, and volunteer opportunities in the Houston area. Come and go as you like! Some of the entities which will be represented are:
– Sorenson Communications
– Region 4 Education Service Center
– Visual Communication Services
– Sign Shares
– University of Houston – ASL Interpreting Bachelor’s Program
– University of Houston-Downtown – BAAS in Applied Administration Program
