Local 1671 Leadership
Updated On: Apr 17, 2020

Interpreters United is a Washington State 501(c)(5) non-profit organization run by INTERPRETERS WHO VOLUNTEER to serve our fellow union members.

Per our constitution, we elect our Local 1671 Officers in October.  Except for trustees, officers are elected for a two year term. Vacancies in office can be filled by vote of the Executive Board pursuant to our Local 1671 constitution.  Please contact us at local1671 [at] gmail.com if you are interested in being appointed to a vacant position. 

Unlike most of the other WFSE/AFSCME Council 28 locals, Interpreters United is a statewide local.  Our members provide interpreter services to Limited English Proficient (LEP) Washingtonians all around the state.  We are all part of Local 1671 which meets 4 times a year as a statewide organization.  But much of the time, we are collaborating and networking with interpreters working and living near us.

Below is a list of our current elected officers, all of whom except trustees are elected or appointed for a term that expires in October 2015. The Executive Board board also relies heavily on the work done within its several committees where many members volunteer their time to help improve our profession.
