Silent Weekend is a voice off venue that welcomes people interested and involved in visual language. We have classes for those with no functional skill all the way up to and including those with native abilities. Classes are provided for RID members to earn CEU/ACET's. We also provide Professional Development Certificates. Come learn from some of the nation's top presenters. Participants from all over the country enjoy the atmosphere of camaraderie.
The 2018 Silent Weekend will be held at The Florida Hotel and Conference Center from Thursday, June 21nd to Sunday, June 24th.
