Special consideration will be given to those presenters who are willing to present two or more times on the same or different topic(s). Proposed sessions will be selected based on the information you provide. Since we try to offer new sessions each year, please note that if you have previously presented and have a new topic we encourage you to apply.

Although all workshop topics will be considered, the membership have expressed particular interest in:
Cultural mediation
Medical interpreting
Ethical decision making
Interpreting skills development
Mental health interpreting
Educational interpreting
Power, Privilege, and Oppression

Timeline:
DEADLINE EXTENDED: February 15, 2018

Compensation:
Honorarium of $300 for a 3 hour presentation, $600 for a 6 hour presentation
Hotel accommodations for the night before or night after presentation.
Other reimbursements will be determined per individual including travel.
Specific travel requirements will be worked out with each selected presenter prior to commitment.
**If you have a co-presenter, please try to have your co-presenter’s information when you submit your proposal. NOTE: the expectation is that co-presenters will be treated as “one” presenter for payment. The reimbursement benefits listed above is per “workshop” and not individual.**
