VTRID May Retreat

purple banner retreat

VTRID is excited to announce that registration is now open for our May Retreat!!! After much planning we have put together an awesome weekend and are so excited to see you all there.

These last two years have brought a number of changes to our small Deaf and interpreting communities. The landscape of our community and our work is changing and the VTRID board feels we need to face these changes head on and be active participants in guiding the future of VTRID and Interpreting in Vermont.
“Who Are We & Where Are We Going?”
Workshops topics for the weekend include: Identity, Deaf Community Forum, Who we are, VTRID: Where Are We Going, and the VTRID business meeting.
We will also be raffling off 3 gift baskets for the Yolande Henry Community Fund – with a grand prize basket of a weekend get away at Smugglers Notch!!
