While this CD was actively planning to meet, we delayed our dates to October. And then it became apparent that traveling and coming together was an unnecessary risk.
Instead, we are coming together on Zoom.
Our planning for an October CD has evolved into a Zoom retreat, where we will spend parts of 3 days online with each other. Hoping to avoid screen fatigue and figuring out how to work a schedule for 3 different time zones is a feat we can manage.
We've become adept at finding alternate approaches like this to process our thoughts about our work as interpreters.
Texting. Emails. Marco Polo and Glide. Skype, Whereby, Google Hangouts, and Zoom! We've done it all!
