Community Events and Interpretation Support
To work in the best interest of clients and the community, IAR is committed to providing language and translation resources to our members. To gain a better understanding of our membership and the need for interpretation services, IAR has created a language survey to engage with our members on this topic and learn more about the makeup of our membership. In order to help our efforts, please fill out our languages form to indicate your fluency in various languages so we can update our records and provide future interpretation resources.
Several community organizations across the state are committed to DEI efforts. We encourage IAR members to become involved in these groups and participate in their events.
