Welcome to the first issue of the new Arizona Translators &
At its strategic planning meeting in February, the ATI Board decided to launch a quarterly
newsletter for all members. The goal of the newsletter is to keep you connected with the ATI’s
activities. It will also let you know how you can get more involved. Contact Jennifer Baldwin
(email@example.com) to suggest what you would like to see in the newsletter.
Aside from administrative business and routine planning for our seasonal workshops and annual
conference, the strategic planning meeting focused on how we can provide a greater benefit
to ATI members, how we might attract new members, and how we can raise the profile of ATI
as the authoritative professional organization for language service providers in Arizona.
Revamped meetups for networking, enjoying great food, and
now… taking part in themed discussions about our profession!

Our informal restaurant
“meetups” have proven to
be popular among ATI
members. They give us a
chance not only to grow
and deepen our
professional network, but
also to simply enjoy
socializing with friends and
colleagues in our profession
in a casual setting.
This year, we are building on
this successful formula by
meetups. Each meetup’s
theme indicates the topic of
a brief informal presentation
or optional suggested topic
of discussion that will be
incorporated into the event.
No preparation is required
on your part, and any
themed discussion or activity
is entirely optional. The focus
of the meetups will continue
to be socializing and
networking, but we hope
the themes will make an
already enjoyable event
even more worthwhile.
Come check out our
revamped meetups! We’d
love your suggestions for
meetup themes, as well as
your general feedback and
suggestions. Tell us in person
at a meetup, or email Trevor
or Aldina Hanessian
your ideas anytime.
