“The Interpreter Guild: Apprentice to Master Crafts(wo)man”
Date: April 28th, 2012 8:30 am to 5:00 pm
CPC Tenet 5: Interpreters demonstrate respect for colleagues, interns, and students of the profession.
This workshop presents a “tool belt” of activities that creates a reference for those who are graduates of ITPs of discover ways to break into the field, to know how to find resources to enhance their life-long learning, and to connect with peers (regardless of skill level) in ways that strengthen performance. The activities and discussions in this workshop will require participation not only from those “apprentices” but also from working interpreters “journeymen” and those leaders and mentors in the field as “master craftsmen” to create an holistic approach to professionalism and nurturing excellence from all who call themselves interpreters. Emphasis on professional standards, communication, teamwork, and sharing knowledge creates a guild environment where the participants take care of their own in a safe environment!
