Dear Members,

One of the greatest privileges of my life has been to serve WASLI since 2005, first as North American representative and then as President for the past 8 years.  At the July 17, 2019 WASLI General Assembly to be held at Paris, I will move to Honorary President, and it will be time to elect the next Board of Directors.

WASLI invites nominations for the positions of President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, and Deaf Interpreter Advisor. Each position is a four-year term. Nominations are to be received by March 31, 2019.

As per our governing statutes, nominations are to have the support of the national organization that the individual is an active member of, and the national organization must hold National Membership in WASLI.  Nominations can be emailed to or

As in previous years, we ask all candidates to complete the attached form, which will then be distributed with the General Assembly meeting package. Thank you for considering the ways in which you can serve our international association.  We have an amazing heritage, a limitless future and so many interpreting leaders around the world with skills and experience to share with WASLI.

Respectfully and with my warmest regards,

Debra Russell, PhD, Certified Interpreter

WASLI President
