ASLIA National Conference 2018

14 October, 2016 - 16 October, 2016

We are excited to invite ASLIA members, and the broader Deaf and interpreting communities to the ANC 2018 “Partners in Practice.”

ANC2018 will be held in Brisbane 21-24 September 2018.

This year’s ANC theme reflects our belief that the greatest benefit to our industry and the communities we work in, comes from exploring, developing and sustaining important partnerships. ANC 2018 promises to be an informative conference, forging strong ties and strengthening our industry and community.

In the coming days, ANC will be sending out a call for the submission of Paper and Poster presentations, as well as a call for nominations for the J W Flynn Oration. The John W Flynn Oration is an ASLIA initiative, named in honour of an interpreter and welfare worker of many years’ experience, who was instrumental in establishing NAATI accreditation and training systems for Auslan interpreters. In 1977, NAATI was established, and in April 1979, it was mooted sign language interpreters be considered for accreditation, with Mr John W Flynn a driving force behind the proposal.

The Oration carries its name in recognition of John’s pioneering work in the field. Following his inaugural oration in 1996, many well-respected and influential practitioners of interpreting, consumers of interpreting services, interpreter educators and researchers have delivered the J W Flynn Oration. Describing the personal and professional journeys of the individuals concerned, the Oration also recognises the orators as pioneers in various ways, as very strong ambassadors of sign language interpreters and contributors to the professionalisation of the
interpreting field.
