Community Relations

The Director of Community Relations ensures that PCRID and community organizations impacted by the interpreter profession are working together toward building the strength of the community. These "sister" organizations are referred to as Stakeholder Organizations, and are membership-based chapters of national organizations within the Deaf and Interpreter communities. PCIRD Community Representatives attend community & networking events as an official PCRID Rep. Liaisons assist in partnership and communication efforts with Stakeholder Organizations, which also helps keep PCRID informed of community events to add to our Community Calendar.
