It’s been a long time since I’ve been excited by something but I attended today a regional meeting of ASLI (Association of Sign Language Interpreters). The North West region have been given the ‘honour’ (?!) of hosting the conference in 2014, a hard act to follow after our colleagues in Bristol did so well previously.
However, being a hardy lot up in t’north, we have risen to the challenge just like a harrier jumpjet (I can’t give the game away but there is a real reason for mentioning jump jets) and we have an excellent panel of people, all whom are volunteers to make this an event to remember. Planning is in the initial stages but I am sure it is going to be a conference to remember!
Please keep your eye on the ASLI website for more information!
