A General Assembly of both hearing and deaf sign language interpreters was successfully held last Saturday, May 21 at CAP Development Center in Makati City and attended by more than 100 interpreters and supporters. This momentous activity was brought about by the inclusion of World Association of Sign Language Interpreters Asia Forum (WASLI) during the Asia Pacific Conference of World Federation of the Deaf held in the Tagaytay City, Philippines last November 2010 which was sponsored by Philippine Federation of the Deaf.
