Consultation Day (Online) 2nd April 10:30-16:00
The first consultation day this year will be held online, via zoom, in 4 separate one hour sessions. The morning sessions will be held in BSL, the afternoon sessions will be interpreted.
As we will be online, we do not have tight restrictions on participant numbers. We would encourage 2-3 members of each region to attend. This can, but does not have to be an official representative of the region. If anyone is interested in attending, they should contact their regional rep, but can book on directly via the event calendar on the website.
If you are having any technical issues with booking for the event, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. For content related questions, please contact email@example.com
10:00-11:00 reflections on the pandemic (BSL)
We would like your feedback on how you felt supported by your association throughout the past couple of years: What did we do well, what could we have done better? In hindsight, what would you have liked to see? Is there anything we can do now, as life slowly returns to post-pandemic activity, but our work largely remains different from pre-pandemic?
This session aims to discuss the current CPD offers on both regional and national level, and seeks to consider the full spectrum of members in ASLI. What would you like to see more (or less) of? Have you got any ideas on topics, themes, events? Do you prefer remote or f2f or a mixture, and in what frequency? Are members asking for specific training for specific settings, or aimed more at trainees/seasoned interpreters/translators etc?
1:30-2:30 regional exchange (interpreted)
This session is all about our regions. We would like to hear from you, your successes and obstacles, the support you would like from the board, any issues of national relevance, and just generally how things are going in your area.
3:00-4:00 How can we help you help us? Invigorating the volunteer experience (interpreted)
Like many other sectors, ASLI largely relies on the support from members for events and activities. But all our busy lives make it more and more difficult to find time and motivation to commit to roles and duties. So we would like to know if there is anything we can do as a board to put in place systems, strategies or incentives that would encourage more active involvement in the association, both on regional and national level.
