    Leadership, Engagement And Development …Together!  A Working Conference of Change Agents 

    LEAD Together Conference FAQs


    PURPOSE: The purpose of the Lead Together conference is to create a shared opportunity for purpose-driven leaders and practitioners within the RID and Deaf and Interpreter Communities to come together to advance the mission of RID—either through collaboration on strategic planning for the association or through concentrated skills development activities designed to improve interpreting practice. There will be two tracks offered—one is a Leadership track and one an ASL Interpreting Skills Development track.

    VISION: The RID Board of Directors vision for the 2017 Lead Together conference is to purposefully engage RID members and community stakeholders in an inclusive environment where respect, civility, and results-driven collaboration are modeled to advance our common goals and values. We expect all who choose to participate onsite at the Lead Together conference to give the best we have to offer so we can harness our common desire for a stronger and more unified RID, dedicated to fostering the highest degree of linguistic access for the Deaf Community possible. The recommendations that come out of the work of leadership track participants at the Lead Together conference will be used to define the 2018-2022 RID Strategic Plan.

    cid:image014.png@01D0A841.91545C70Non-Manual Signals: ASL Markers (NEW!)   

    This workshop has a focus on non-manual signals, which are not distinctive "hand signs" yet are essential language morphemes. Interpreters will analyze and apply these grammatical markers, which involve eye and head movements, facial movements and body postures rather than the use of "signs" as distinct lexical elements. Video clips and discussion will increase interpreters' confidence in the use of non-manual markers (non-manual morphemes). (0.4 RID CEUs available)


    August 25, 2017 ~ Friday 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm

    Visible Words: The Art of Storytelling With Classifiers

    Let’s create better visual imagery with ASL classifiers! Maybe you’ve wondered: Are there any new classifiers? Which classifiers best express certain ideas? How can we use classifiers most effectively? ASL classifiers are simply handshapes used to convey action and ideas in concise and visually articulate ways. Let’s polish our storytelling by improving visual imagery with classifiers. This workshop will offer hands-on practice in using classifier handshapes with creativity and precision. Move away from thinking in English and stringing signs together. Let handshapes tell the story! (0.4 RID CEUs available)   


    August 26, 2017 ~ Saturday   8:00 am – 5:00 pm

    ENGLISH EQUIVALENTS:  Whoa! Train Zoom Gone.  Did You See What She Signed? What did she mean by that and how can I say it in English?

    English Equivalents help the student take signs that do not have just one translation in English and help the participant become aware of idiomatic English translations along with some technical vocabulary associated with particular signs.  English Equivalents in ASL will help you confidently continue the flow of information exchange from ASL to English and from English to ASL.  Trix Bruce is an Approved RID CMP Sponsor for Continuing Education Activities. This Professional Studies program is offered 0.8 CEUS for Classifiers at the Little/No to Some Content Knowledge Level.
