RID recently launched the 2020 Practitioner Survey. This survey had two parts:
- a series of questions from the RID Finance Committee, designed to help the Finance Committee advise the RID Board and HQ on how best to support our members during this challenging time.
- a series of questions designed to see “the state of the profession”.
The questions in the second part were largely taken from the 2010 study by Betsy Winston and Dennis Cokely, “Interpreter Practitioner Needs Assessment Trends Analysis”. Some questions were omitted, others slightly expanded. Overall, our intention is to make the two surveys as similar as possible so that results can be compared.
We’ve included it below, due to popular demand.
