    OSTI Court Interpreter Cafe 

    (Formerly the Oregon Court Interpreter Social and Check-In)

    w/ Special Guest André Knaebel

    (Note: This event is open to Oregon Certified and Registered Court Interpreters, OSTI Membership not required. Please attend or stop by at your leisure or availability.)

    When: Wednesday, July 28, 2021, 6:00-8:00pm PDT
    Location: via Zoom
    Why: To socialize and check-in with our colleagues; to learn from each other and share our common experiences interpreting for the Oregon Courts during pandemic times; and—very importantly—to cut loose and socialize a little! These get-togethers will not be recorded, and are meant to foment solidarity amongst our colleagues when dealing with the various in-person, remote, and hybrid modalities of court interpreting. We can also chat about any issues that impact us, from rates of pay to representation in all aspects of court life. This is an ongoing event with varying hosts, an array of "set" and "loose" agendas, and guest speakers. Join us!

    Special Guest: Our friend and colleague, federally certified staff court interpreter, André Knaebel, will be speaking to us regarding his experiences interpreting in the Oregon U.S. District Court during the pandemic. Please come spend some time with André and us–some of whom know him as an artist who pays for his art supplies by interpreting.


    We kindly request your RSVP by 7/27/2021 to assist with arrangements. 

    Hosts: Oregon Certified Court Interpreters Adrian Arias and John Wan

    OSTI’s friendly suggestions for a successful virtual conference experience:

    • Stable internet access
    • Webcam and microphone for interactive sessions. Please mute your microphone if you are not speaking, as any background noise competes with the presentation audio.
    • If you are new to Zoom, consider taking some tutorials to familiarize yourself with the interface and etiquette.
    • Keep an eye out for handouts sent by your presenters and have them at hand during the presentation.
