Court Language Access Services is pleased to be hosting the
7th Annual Pacific Northwest Court Interpreter Conference this fall. While the time of year has changed, you can expect to receive the high caliber of training that we have offered at each annual conference. After the recption and social hour on Friday evening Amber Hodson, who spoke at the 2015 conference, will be presenting a two-hour workshop on Vicarious Trauma. We have a full day of intense
skill building planned on Saturday with a Spanish specific workshop presented by Esther Navarro-Hall, and
a language neutral session with Kelly Varguez. Due to popular request we
have doubled the amount of ethics credits we are offering this year and have
asked Milena Calderari-Waldron to teach a four-hour ethics course on Sunday
