     Something new this year at the conference... daily Fora Linguara sessions.  These are language-specific small groups in which the participants can practice translation; everybody participates, everybody has a laugh or two, and everybody benefits. Check at the registration desk for languages and room numbers for the Fora. We will also be trying out the exciting Speed Networking technique to get folks to meet and mingle. It is fun!    

     

    AND NOW A WORD FROM THE PRESIDENT...

    It is with great pride (and some trepidation) that I address you as the new President of NATI.  It has been extremely rewarding to be part of this Association's work on behalf of translators and interpreters in the Midwest. It is also rather amazing to consider how much information this Association disseminates, how many useful and sometimes life-changing contacts are made, and how many people are trained and educated through associating with NATI. I am pleased and honored to be a part of it all.

    Now in our 15th year of existence, it looks like another exciting year is on the horizon, and your NATI Board is busy making plans of all kinds. A few examples:

    The upcoming NATI 2014 conference is well under way as I write this. Mark your calendars for August 7-9, 2014 and keep checking the website for updates. 

    We are committed to making this website interactive and keeping it constantly updated so that you will all check the website regularly. Please pass along items of interest that may assist the Translation & Interpretation community. Also in the works are new postings about special interest items, interviews, feature members and more. 

    A personal goal of mine as President is to foster regular participation from among the general membership. When everyone participates in some way in NATI's various activities, we all win. We welcome your ideas and suggestions for improvement; even more, we invite you to volunteer your expertise, time and effort. Please contact any Board member, and we will make every effort to find a way for you to contribute. 

    Finally, another goal of mine is to begin offering training on a more consistent basis, and to offer it in various areas of the state throughout the year. Lunch & learns, online training and podcasts, mini conferences are all considerations. 

    Be sure to check out other training and conference venues - look under Professional Development Events in the Menu.

    Thank you for being part of this wonderful Association. I look forward to serving you all in the coming years.

    Sincerely, 

    Marsha Conroy
