BMC wants to publicly recognize and thank the many people who have made this journey so meaningful. Our administrative team has worked tirelessly to overcome the challenges brought by Covid-19.

Michael Labadie-Mendes is our webmaster and the one creating registration pages to keep people informed about our seminars and projects.
Nathan Fowler has coordinated, operationalized, and managed daily operations: responding to queries and requests, CEU applications and procedures, and so much more.
Carolyn Kropp has graciously stepped in to handle advertising and social media posts about our offerings, allowing us to reach a wider audience.

Their ideas, creativity, and commitment has allowed us to continue our efforts to serve our diverse Deaf, Coda, and hearing communities of interpreters, mentors, educators, and consumers.
We are also blessed to have the support, input, and involvement in the many innovative projects we are offering and planning for the coming year.

Thank you to Lianne Moccia for her many years of service, facilitation, scaffolding, and love for the work we do. Kelly Decker, a trailblazer who has brought her talents to bear on the national scene, has been a valued part of many BMC initiatives. Anne Braun has devoted many hours and skills to seminal BMC projects. David Evans has contributed his skill in creating/designing graphics used on our website and in our seminars.

We truly appreciate the dozens of facilitators who offer support in our seminars. Their engagement is valued and it creates a learner-centered environment. Thank you so much. There are too many to list here and rather than risk leaving someone’s name out, we trust that they know who they are.

Betty Colonomos 'thank you'

Finally, thank you to all those who participate in our exploration of our processes, beliefs, and who strive to be the best they can be. The journey is not always easy or smooth sailing. Thank you for being willing to challenge yourselves and the system that needs change.

Wishing everyone a healthy year of discovery and growth.
