ICRID 2014 Annual Conference Call for Support Staff
The 2014 ICRID Annual Conference Committee is seeking enthusiastic, hard-working, motivated, and flexible volunteers to work at the 2014 ICRID Annual Conference, to be held October 17-18, 2014 at Ben Davis High School in Indianapolis. Conference support staff responsibilities may include, but are not limited to: assisting the conference support staff coordinators and/or the interpreter coordinators, managing workshops, operating the registration table, silent auction, selling t-shirts, making copies, set up/tear down, and running various errands. Volunteering as a support staff for the annual conference is hard work, and it is also an incredible opportunity for interpreting students. It is a chance to interact with the ICRID Board members, ICRID Committees and working interpreters throughout the state of Indiana. It also allows the opportunity to observe presenters and interpreters who are amazing role models in our profession.
Submit a completed application, post marked by September 22, 2014 to the address below.

Children's Museum ASL Video Project
The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis has initiated a project to create several ASL videos for its new website. The goal of this project is to be more inclusive of people who are Deaf or hard of hearing by providing information about the museum in a fun and engaging way for native ASL users. The museum also acknowledges the value of effective communication through sign language. These ASL videos will provide general information about visiting the museum, and also specific information about many of the current exhibits. The museum wants to recruit members of the local Deaf Community to be in the videos.
If you are interested in volunteering to be in the videos, or help interpret/transcribe ASL to English, please contact Kris Johnson via email: email@example.com
