CCIO Fall Professional Development Event

The Community and Court Interpreters of the Ohio Valley is hosting a special professional development event on October 26, 2007, from 10:00 am until 5:00 pm. The event will be held at the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation, in London, Ohio, and at the Supreme Court of Ohio. Courtesy of Natasha Curtis, fliers regarding the From Our Lips to Your Ears project will be on hand for participants. Participants will meet at the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation (BCI&I) at 10:00 a.m. where participants will have a chance to tour the facility and talk with people who work in the various sections of the BCI&I. This will include the DNA unit and various other units of the Forensic Laboratory, the Identification Section (responsible for maintaining criminal records, conducting record checks etc.), and Investigation Section.

The afternoon will then kick off at 1:45 p.m. at the Supreme Court of Ohio building where participants will be introduced to the fascinating world of Forensic Linguistics with a presentation by Dr. Susan Berk-Seligson, a nationally recognized expert in the field. The day will conclude with a brief open discussion with Mr. Bruno Romero, Interpreter Services Program Manager at the Supreme Court of Ohio, about certification efforts currently underway in Ohio.
