Idaho ASL Interpreter Licensing Town Hall Meetings

—Passing Along–

Information from Idaho RID’s Facebook page:

Interested in learning more about the Idaho sign language interpreting licensure bill?

Join us for a town hall forum:
Thursday, May 8th at 7pm
Idaho State University – Meridian, Room 689
1311 E. Central Ave., Meridian, Idaho

We will discuss the highlights and rationale of the bill, and look forward to your questions and feedback on the bill.

After 7pm, you do not need a parking pass. Enter the campus and follow the signs to ISU. Come in the main entrance. The doors in the building lock at 7pm, so you will need to wait for someone to come get you if you arrive late. We will send someone to check at 7:10pm. The meeting will be held in room 689.

For those of you attending this meeting via distance learning in Idaho Falls, go to 1784 Science Center Dr., Idaho Falls, ID 83402, and go to the CHE building, which is on the left. You will need a parking pass, so RSVP to Holly Thomas-Mowery, and she will send you one via email.
