General Information

Thank you for your interest in joining CASLI! Here is some general information about CASLI membership:

    • CASLI Membership Year

The CASLI membership year is from April 1st to March 31st annually.  New memberships can be processed at any time of the year, but membership fees will not be pro-rated. All memberships must be renewed by the next March 31st.

Criteria for Membership

Student membership is reserved for those enrolled in a CASLI-recognized interpreter education program (IEP) and who are training to become professional sign language interpreters.


What if my IEP is not on CASLI (AVLIC)'s Recognized Program List?

For students enrolled in an IEP which does not appear on the CASLI-recognized IEP list, membership with CASLI may still be possible. CASLI's International IEP Review taskforce is mandated to review interpreter education programs which are not currently on the CASLI recognized IEP list (this includes IEPs within the USA). They then make recommendations to the CASLI Board of Directors to add IEPs with equitable program standards and outcomes to the current list. Contact the CASLI office to request a review by the International IEP Review taskforce.


Cost to Become a Student Member

The cost to become a student member depends on many factors, such as

    • Affiliate Chapter fees
