Application for Ad-Hoc Licensure Committee
Due December 21, 2019
Hi, my name is Tarra Grammenos and I’m the current MRID President. At this most recent fall conference business meeting, there was a motion from the floor (that passed) to establish an ad-hoc committee to research the potential of interpreter licensure here in Minnesota. Read more...
Motion 19:10:25 - MRID shall establish an ad-hoc committee to investigate the potential of interpreter licensure in the state of Minnesota. The committee will collaborate with MADC as appropriate. The composition of the committee shall be made up of at least 50% deaf interpreters. (Houge/Evans)
The call for that committee is now open. We encourage deaf and hearing interpreters from all over the state, from various backgrounds and experiences to apply. That group will meet periodically, however the exact details of where, when, how often, etc. will be established by the committee itself.
If you’re interested and passionate about the topic, please apply! Looking forward to working with you soon!
