NAI National Conference

It's our time!

Join us November 27 to December 1 in New Orleans as we celebrate our 30th anniversary at the 2018 NAI National Conference at the Marriott New Orleans on Canal. Check back here for conference details and registration information.

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 better future. 

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?

New Orleans a city steeped in history is celebrating its 300th anniversary in 2018—making 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!

Laissez les bon temps rouler! Let the good times roll…
