NAIE Offering FREE One-Year Membership

(ASL Announcement)

May 4, 2020: The NAIE Board of Directors recognizes that many educational stakeholders have been impacted in various ways by the COVID-19 crisis. We want to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to benefit from membership of NAIE, including those who may be experiencing financial challenges.  While our society recovers from the COVID-19 crisis, we are offering a one-year membership at no cost. The option will be available to those who need it through December 31, 2020. We welcome our educational interpreter colleagues as well as teachers, administrators, and other educational stakeholders to join the NAIE community. The Frequently Asked Questions page provides additional information about this opportunity. We hope this gesture alleviates some of the financial difficulties associated with this crisis so that you can access membership benefits.

About NAIE Membership

NAIE is a space for all interpreters and stakeholders who support deaf, hard of hearing, and deafblind students to address the challenges of the educational system. NAIE encourages educational interpreters (K-12 and postsecondary), cued speech transliterators, oral transliterators, Teachers of the Deaf, parents, administrators, IEP team members, and all persons who have an active interest in the mission of the association to become members.

  • NAIE members are a part of a national, professional organization that seeks to meet the unique needs of persons involved in the educational interpreting field.
  • NAIE will support you in staying abreast of current practices through a variety of professional development opportunities, resources, and newsletters.

  • NAIE provides a place to be a change agent. As a member, along with all the diverse members, will have a collective voice that can impact best practices within the field.
