Due to the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic and to protect the safety of our community, MCDHH will not be hosting the Missouri Interpreters Conference this year. We believe that bringing interpreters together from across the state for a weekend of sharing ideas, practicing hands-on skills, and getting to know one another is what sets our event apart from other professional development opportunities. However, this gathering in close proximity could also jeopardize the health and safety of attending interpreters, their families, and the Deaf and Hard of Hearing people that we all are here to serve.

We encourage you to start making plans to seek professional development in other ways this year, as there will not be an extension or waiver of CEU requirements. There is a plethora of CEU opportunities available, ranging from in-person gatherings in your local community, to online courses, even to independent study. In addition to promoting classes on our weekly e-newsletter and social media, MCDHH will be launching a webpage dedicated to listing CEU opportunities as they become available. If you are the host of a course that is eligible for MICS or RID CEUs in Missouri, please send us your information to Emily.Morrison@mcdhh.mo.gov to be included on our website.
