Another Interpreter Institute is in the books and it was awesome!  We will be updating these pages as we recover with the week-long marathon.  Right now, we have pictures available on the Past Institutes page.  We will be adding information over the next few weeks.   Did you know we have a waiting list of 30 people and 17 people have told us they will attend next year no matter when we hold it.   We expect to announce the date for the 1027 institute in late November or early December.   Next year looks to be a very competitive class.
