Professional sign language interpreters
ASLI, the Association of Sign Language Interpreters and Translators in the United Kingdom was established in 1987, to provide professional discussion on all issues related to sign language interpreting and the provision of interpreting services. From the beginning our aims have been simple: to encourage good practice in sign language interpreting and to support our fellow professionals.
Annual General Meeting – call for member resolution and nominations.
Prior to the AGM we will host a separate pre-AGM meeting to discuss any motions as we would usually do at our face to face AGMs. The date for this will be announced in due course.
If you wish to attend the AGM please RSVP using our calendar – you do not have to be a member to attend our AGM, it is an open meeting but only full and associate members are allowed to vote.
We look forward to seeing you there.
