Changes to Separate from Signature

Earlier this month we updated you on our next steps about our operational separation from Signature. Upcoming changes include recruitment of new staff and a new contact number.

The news article is available to read and in BSL on our website. Progress updates will be posted regularly through November via our website, facebook, twitter, newsletter and email so please look out for these. The most important initially will be the announcement of the new contact number.

New Trustees

We are very pleased to have appointed three Trustees following a recruitment process in August. We welcome Lisa Cordaro STTR as a Registrant Board member and Alan Lees FCA as Honorary Treasurer. Frank Harrington RSLI has been reappointed. You can read the full news article on the website.

CPD

As part of the review of our CPD policy, a working group will meet on 12 November in London. The group has representatives from all of the professional associations. The group will discuss the current CPD policy and will make recommendations for changes and improvements. We will keep you updated about the progress of the CPD policy review in the newsletter.

Meetings

Our annual strategy day takes place on Tuesday 30 October in London.

The next Practitioners' Forum meeting is on 5 November. Agenda items include remapping of interpreting courses, separation plans and the CPD policy review.
