The Interpreter’s Lab monthly professional development series supports your continuing education by bringing you an expertly curated list of topics and speakers and makes connecting and participating super simple.

You can access this monthly series as a full member of The Interpreter’s Lab, and gain access to many other benefits, such as discounts of up to $150 for each core educational program we offer and only pay $12.99/month for each workshop, instead of $30 each. It’s like getting the whole year of workshops free!

If you are not ready to commit to a membership, you can choose to purchase one or several workshops for $30/month, or per 1.5-hour workshop.
