SILENT WEEKEND 2015 - - OUR BIGGEST AND BEST YEAR YET

In July 2015, we hosted our 7th annual immersion weekend for sign language students, interpreter practitioners and interpreter educators. Participation spiked this year by over 70%, with 220 in attendance from 19 states, Canada and Puerto Rico. There were 31 professional development and skill-building workshops offered with Deaf and hearing presenters alike. There were also social and silent meals, ice-breakers and activities.\
