The Arizona Translators & Interpreters Inc. (ATI) invites you to attend its Annual Conference to be held on, Saturday, September 24, 2022, its first in-person gathering in three (3) years!!

This Conference offers a unique opportunity, given the increasingly diverse language access issues and sociopolitical issues within the state. It also affords a professional opportunity for speakers wishing to share their knowledge, their organization, a particular concept, solution or program related to language access and culture in front of a broad audience consisting of decision-makers and influencers among others in language-related fields.

As it is customary, the ATI Annual Conference will offer an informative professional development event designed to offer translators and interpreters, and the organizations that work with them (government, legal, healthcare, call-centers, financial institutes and other general business to business). This is the once-a-year opportunity for professionals to network and sharpen their skills and for these organizations to recruit potential employees and freelancers.

Attendees are expected to include members of the local community, translators and interpreters, educators, trainers, and language coaches, language service providers, public service agencies, government agencies, managers of hospital interpreting and translation services, health insurance organizations, court and legal services, call-centers, business operations, advocacy groups and other stakeholders.
