Region 7 Newsletter Editor
Thanks to all of you who shared your thoughts by taking the Region 7 Membership Survey. We had a good response rate and your needs concerning training and professional development are being considered by a newly created committee tasked with planning regional workshops and webinars. If you are interested in serving on the committee, please contact NAI Region 7.
Through the survey we learned that the while most of our members do turn to NAI for training and professional development, the cost, distance from home, and time away from work are major barriers to participation. Several topics in addition to the four submitted by NAI Region 7 leadership were suggested. Apart from professional development the thing our members would find most helpful would be opportunities for networking with other professionals in the field of interpretation or related areas.
All of your responses will help Region 7 plan workshops that meet your needs at the price and the format you find most accessible.
