Our conference, “Exploring Identity in an Evolving Community,” will give you a chance to learn from experts and peers, catch up with old friends, and establish new connections. Mark your calendars now!

On behalf of the Ohio Chapter of the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (OCRID), we invite to you participate in our upcoming State Conference as a sponsor.  

OCRID is the only statewide organization for ASL-English interpreters. The conference brings together hundreds of participants as a means of advocating for interpreter and disability rights. We offer an opportunity for networking, participating in educational workshops, engaging in professional discourse, and collaborating on a statewide and national scale.  

This year, we have the exciting opportunity to offer our packages at drastically discounted rates from last year. We invite you to explore this year’s rates and take advantage of this record low. All the benefits from our sponsorship packages, as well as our new capacity to order online, can be viewed here:

As a supporter of OCRID you will enjoy a number of benefits. We invite you to look over our tax-deductible sponsorship packages in the link above to recognize the cumulative perks to be gained through your contributions.  

Thank you for your generosity and dedication to the interpreting community and disability rights.
