About Us

Purpose

The goals of this organization are to initiate, sponsor, promote and execute policies and activities that further the profession of the sign language interpreter.

In furtherance of these goals, the PCRID offers workshops on diverse topics for a wide range of practitioners, including interpreters who are Deaf and interpreters who are hearing.

In addition, PCRID offers some research and scholarship monies for sign language interpreters to increase their knowledge and to gain mastery of new skills.
