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.
