On October 15 and 16, 2010 5 Pierce College interpreting students attended the WASCLA Summit VI in Shoreline, WA. The Washington State Coalition for Language Access works on a variety of issues around equitably providing services to people with limited English proficiency, including continuing education for working interpreters and to service providers that work with interpreters.
The students received registration scholarships through the Pierce College Foundation. This is the second year that students have attended the conference. Last year, three students were funded to attend the conference in Spokane, WA. I invite the students that participated to comment on their experiences.
