Christine:

Hi! Guess what? This summer at the RID 2019 National Conference, we will be having a new format for presentations, called Spark Inspirations.

Maybe you have an idea you want to share. Maybe your friends have listened to your idea and encouraged you to present at the RID National Conference, but you feel it’s not “big enough” for a full workshop. Well, this isn’t a workshop. It’s capped at 20 minutes – the perfect opportunity to share your idea with a diverse audience of interpreters, Deaf, and DeafBlind community members. Get on stage, pour out your thoughts and ideas, engage your audience!  We want you to blow people’s minds, and cause a ripple effect of discussion and positive change.
