  2. Meetup

    Comments Off on Meetup

    This new initiative was created in January by Arizona Translators & Interpreters and we have been very successful with our monthly meetings thus far. This networking group is for Arizona-area translators, revisors and interpreters. We would like to  grow as professionals and share ideas, give feedback to the association and meet like-minded professionals.

    We will be having meetups at cafés, restaurants and members’ homes (potlucks) where we’ll discuss issues such as language resources, self-promotion, dealing with difficult clients, and other related topics. If anyone would like to lecture on one of these issues or another related topic at a Meetup event, we’d be happy to hear from you.

    Stay abreast of professional development by joining our meetings once a month. Our events alternate between Phoenix, Tucson and any other cities suggested by members.
