What We Do

It is the mission of the Southern California Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf to promote best practices, equity, and representation within the profession of Sign Language Interpreting; provide professional development and education for current and future practitioners; serve as a forum for ongoing assessment of and response to community needs; and, advocate to the public for the highest standards in the provision of interpreting services for users of both sign languages and spoken languages.

Board Meetings Open to All

SCRID holds quarterly open board meetings and we want to hear from you! During board meetings we set aside time that gives members the opportunity to raise discussion points on anything relevant to SCRID and our interpreting profession.

What questions do you have related to interpreting that would be beneficial to discuss as a community?

What would you like to see from SCRID that would raise its relevance to you and our local profession?

This is opportunity for members to get involved and create the relevant organization we all desire!

[Watch for Times and Zoom Links above]

SCRID is always in need of volunteers to serve on various committees for a few hours a month.
