As we celebrate our 30th anniversary this year, the theme for the
2018 NAI National Conference, “It’s Our Time,” is an opportunity to
reflect on the important role interpretation has played in the past, to
analyze the profession in the present, and how we can improve to shape a
What has interpretation’s role been over time?
How is our now influenced by the past? How are threats such as changing
landscapes and disappearing resources – cultural and natural – shaping
our present? How will they shape our future? Will reflecting on the past
and looking at the present help us give a voice to the voiceless places
and subjects we interpret?
We are looking for thought-provoking
sessions that speak to where interpretation started and how far it has
come – bringing multiple perspectives from founding members to emerging
members. Session proposals will be critiqued on how well they fit into
the theme, engage the audience, and help further the field of
interpretation and professional development.
New Orleans a city

it the perfect backdrop for NAI 2018, as we think about how “It’s Our
Time” to step forward and use our voices to help shape the important
decisions for the future!
