Welcome to GHID!


We, the GHID board members, wanted to give a BIG “Thank You!” to those who contributed to our last GHID membership meeting of this fiscal year and helping to honor the new ITP graduates of 2016, which occurred on Saturday, May 21st,:
  • CAAG donated hamburger and hotdog meat
  • Crabtree Interpreting donated a luxury steel cups
  • North Harris Lone Star College System various items
  • Visual Communication Service various items
  • Sorenson VRS various items

We honored 12 graduates by providing them with “Interpreter Survival Kits” that consisted several small items that may be useful and helpful to them at the beginning of their interpreting journey and “survival” experience. Give them applauses!! When we gave them out, they eagerly looked through their bags and said they loved it!!

Notice to all GHID members: 
A GHID membership reminder and invoice was just recently sent out. Unfortunately, it still had the old amount of membership dues, which was the previous $10 amount. This year at one of our membership meetings, we voted and passed GHID By-Law amendments, which included an increase of Certified fees to $15 and Associate fees to $12.50. If you’ve already renewed your membership at the old rate, you will receive another invoice for the additional amount. If you have not yet renewed, please take note of the new membership fees and pay accordingly. Thanks members!
