Network with Your Colleagues! Build Union Power!
Updated On: Feb 15, 2016

Meetings offer independent contractor interpreters a chance to network and learn more about what is happening with our profession.  Check out our events calendar for the time and place of a Union meeting or gathering near you! 

To encourage area participation while allowing us to speak with one voice, our Local is subdivided into 4 Regions that each elect a person to our Executive Board.   Each Region is subdivided into Districts that each elect a District Chair (12 districts total). 

Read here to see which Region and District you're in. 

Per our constitution, Interpreters United, Local 1671 has the following regular meetings:

  • District meetings: Every other month (6 times per year) in each district in February, April, June, August, October, and December
  • Local 1671 statewide meetings: 4 times per year all interpreters statewide

Winter            January 30                Region 2        Olympia
