Update About AVLIC 2018 Conference

We are saddened to inform you that the group of members who bid for the 2018 AVLIC conference to be held in Saskatchewan is no longer able to host the biennial conference.

 

Your AVLIC Board is working with Affiliate Chapters and the Canadian Association of the Deaf - Association des Sourds du Canada (CAD-ASC) to secure another host for 2018.  

 

We will keep you updated.

Upgrade to Members' E-mail Address Security

The Directory of AVLIC Members has undergone updates to the coding and programming to improve the security of members' e-mail addresses. 

 

Potentially Fraudulent E-mail Soliciting Interpreting Services

The AVLIC office has become aware that a number of members have recently received a request to provide interpreting services (ASL) for a consumer who lives in the USA and who will be attending a conference/seminar in Canada. The content of the message does not provide a location, but simply states the conference/seminar will be "in Canada" and requests further details for service provision.
