Organizing an efsli event

Each year in September efsli organises its AGM and a conference with a national interpreter organisation. Interpreters, trainers, students, and users of interpreting services participate in this exciting event. It gives a great opportunity to exchange information and expertise with participants from all across Europe and beyond. 

Since the 2020 we no longer host our AGM together with the conference. We needed to separate this to be in compliance with the Belgian law. This means that from 2020 we have our AGM in the first semester of the year and host our conference in September.

Due the Covid-19 pandemic, we couldn’t host a conference in 2020 and had an online one in 2021. From 2022 we hope to be able to organise each year our conference in presents in September.

If you are thinking about hosting an efsli conference, efsli has developed a special guide for the organisers of the efsli conference. Organisers will receive the guide and a budget template to help them organise the efsli event. Organisers will also be assisted by one contact person from the efsli board, for any questions that might arise.

If you would like to receive the guidelines or know more about hosting an efsli conference, please send an email to

efsliT – efsli trainers’ seminar

Every two years efsli is organising a trainers’ seminar together with an interpreter training program in Europe. efsli trainers are professionals who are involved with educating and training (student) sign language interpreters. They play a vital role in the development of the sign language interpreter profession. If you would like to host an efsliT please contact efsli.

For your information efsli created a Guide to organise the efsli trainers’ seminar.
