The National Association of Judiciary Interpreters and Translators is now accepting presentation proposals for the 42nd NAJIT Annual Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada, May 14-16, 2021.
NAJIT’s Annual Conference is the premier event for language professionals and stakeholders of language services in the judiciary and beyond. Lead the conversation by preparing a session proposal. Our sessions are highly interactive and provide participants with relevant content and practical tools that they can apply in their own work. We invite you to help shape the future of interpreting and translation by proposing a session today.
Proposals may be submitted for either a pre-conference workshop, a main conference session, or both as long as they are submitted separately.
PRE-CONFERENCE WORKSHOPS: Friday, May 14th
MAIN CONFERENCE SESSIONS: Saturday, May 15, and Sunday, May 16, 2021.
These are 60, 90, or 120-minute interactive sessions.
The deadline for submitting proposals for both pre-conference workshops and conference sessions is December 4, 2020.
Proposals may focus on all areas of translation and interpreting, including the following specialized areas:
Presenting at the NAJIT conference is a privilege and a mark of distinction in the profession. Our attendees expect and deserve the best content that we can provide. Proposals are evaluated and suggestions may be made in order to meet quality standards and space/time limitations. Acceptance notices will be sent in early 2021.
Submit a proposal to share your knowledge and experience, bring emerging issues to light, or question current paradigms.
We look forward to a wonderful 42nd Annual Conference in 2021.
