Interpreter Associations

Looking for a home close to home? There are a growing number of local and regional interpreter associations around the country that focus on health care interpreting. And they are doing wonderful work, from providing training to lobbying their state legislatures to throwing parties! Join an association near you, or, if you are already a member, read up on what other associations are doing.

(Note: this list tries to be inclusive. If you know of an interpreter organization that has a special focus on health care interpreting, please contact the Membership Committee at membership@ncihc.org, so that the organization can be added to the listing!)
