Upgrade from Student to Active Membership

Congratulations to the students who are about to graduate from the interpreter education programs across the country!  

As you know, graduation from an AVLIC-recognized IEP (click here for a link to the currently recognized programs) means you will be eligible to upgrade your Student membership to Active status.  

Dear valued AVLIC members and stakeholders,

Your Board of Directors met via online web-conference on March 28, 2015 for an extended meeting to discuss the CES and other items on the agenda. We are pleased to inform you of the following highlights.

Applications Being Accepted for the David Still Memorial IEP Graduating Student Award

Submission Deadline: May 15, 2015

David StillThe AVLIC IEP Graduating Student Award was presented for the first time in 2004. It was the decision of the 2002-2004 AVLIC Executive Board to develop a bursary to recognize a graduating student from a Canadian Interpreter Education Program (IEP).

The AVLIC online membership renewal system is experiencing a problem and it is unlikely that members will be able to renew online between now and midnight (March 31, 2015). This is a problem that cannot be fixed tonight.
