Here is an update from the CBC on their ongoing initiative to make public radio accessible.

As you will have seen from the recent Canadian Administrator of VRS (CAV) announcement (cav-acs.ca/news) VRS in Canada is getting closer to being a reality. 

The AVLIC Board feels that this is an opportune time to draft a position paper on AVLICs perspective of VRS in Canada, including the importance of employing AVLIC members, certification of interpreters, health and safety of interpreters, fair employment practices etc.

2016 - 2018 Board Call for Nominations 

We are currently seeking interested members to apply for the position of TREASURER, 2nd Vice President and Secretary.

Your professional association, AVLIC, is governed by you, the member. Over the years, many of you have volunteered for AVLIC in one capacity or another; and it is because of you that AVLIC has grown and is respected as the representative for over 800+ members. 

Your AVLIC Board of Directors is pleased to share these updates from our April 9 & 10 meetings in Victoria, BC. Thanks to the volunteers and organizers who hosted us and provided such a warm welcome. In addition, thank you to all of the visitors, many of whom travelled over from the mainland to observe.

Staffing for AVLIC

A large portion of time was spent focusing on staffing needs. We reflected on the hiring process, orientation and regrettably the recent resignation of the Executive Director, Chris Kenopic.
