Maya de Wit, AIIC SLN coordinator, and Hilda Tejada, member of AIIC SLN for Mexico, presented at the III ELATILS WASLI conference on 'How to join AIIC for sign language interpreters'. Over 200 interpreters and stakeholders from Latin American countries and some from other parts of the world attended the 5 day conference.
The presentation took the interpreters step by step through the process on how to join AIIC. To have an idea of the background and languages of the participants, they were asked to fill out a special designed form to list their country and working languages. The outcome will be used to see how AIIC SLN can conduct further outreach within Latin & Central America.
