 About the 2018 Conference

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 morning.

We are happy to announce that the conference will once again take place at the Crowne Plaza-Lake Oswego. We have not secured a room block at the hotel, but lodging is available. In addition to onsite registration, we are offering early bird pricing this year to participants who register before August 13th.

Make sure to click on the links below for more information about the presenters, workshops, and to register online.

We are looking forward to seeing you all in September!
