Highlight an Interpreter!

Gold_Star_(with_border)This note is for anyone who works with amazing interpreters… and that’s basically everyone!

We are looking for nominations for “Interpreter(s) of the Month” for the NAI Region 9 Newsletter. If you work with someone who shows dedication and passion doing what they love to do, then please let us know about them! We want to recognize the good work being done in our Region.

Contact Ryan Bangs (ryanbangssmc2015[at]gmail.com) to nominate an interpreter you know. All that is needed is a few sentences on why you believe they are so amazing.

Thanks!

Welcome to the National Association for Interpretation Sierra Pacific Region!

With a long history leading the profession of Interpretation, our members from across California, Nevada, and the Pacific Islands continue to inspire and convey the meanings within our cultural and natural assets. From the Rangers in California State Parks, to the Naturalists guiding whale watches in Hawaii, and the interpreters working to share the stories of the first peoples of Nevada; our members work in parks, museums, aquariums, art galleries and many other locations. We endeavor to share the meaningful stories of the people, places, and ideas that we all hold dear.

The Sierra Pacific Region is a small part of a larger community of professional interpreters. Through this website, trainings, workshops, and many other opportunities, we strive to support and grow the Interpretive Profession and the people that our profession impacts.

The National Association for Interpretation (NAI) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit professional organization dedicated to advancing the profession of heritage interpretation, currently serving about 5,000 members in the United States, Canada, and over thirty other nations. Individual members include those who work at parks, museums, nature centers, zoos, botanical gardens, aquariums, historical and cultural sites, commercial tour companies, and theme parks. Commercial and institutional members include those who provide services to the heritage interpretation industry.
