After last September's successful inaugural meeting, the results of everyone's feedback are clear: a clear mandate to launch a national effort to create a code of ethics for educational interpreters and translators.
The inaugural meeting provided the guidance in 4 key areas:
WHAT: Participants want a national effort to create a code of ethics.
HOW: Eventually, there should be a national organization to oversee the effort, but in the meantime a steering committee should jumpstart the process.
FOCUS: The main interest is in the creation of a code of ethics, with a substantial number wanting to include defining the roles of the educational interpreter and translator.
ACTIVITIES: Meeting participants all supported the listserv, creating regional committees, holding regular town hall meetings and focusing on inclusion for languages of lesser diffusion and ASL interpreters moving forward. "All of the above," which included these activities, had the greatest number of responses, but each individual activity also had significant numbers choosing them as priorities.
