In this vlog, Miako Rankin, PCRID's liaison with the Maryland Association of the Deaf (MDAD), provides information from this past summer's joint conference of the National Association of the Deaf (NAD) and RID Region 2.
The main focus is the NAD's five priorities for the current two year term, which were voted on by the Council of Delegates at the conference. The full list of the NAD priorities can be found at: http://nad.org/about-us/priorities.
In addition to the five priorities, many of which present exciting opportunities for us as professional interpreters and also have various implications for our field, NAD will continue to work with RID at the national level in accordance with our previously established MOU and our shared goals and vision.
It was exciting to see our success with our joint MDAD-PCRID conference last November mirrored at the national/regional level. The possibilities are endless when we work together as one community, and we look forward to seeing more collaboration between our organizations!
