I am pleased with the AAIT membership.
This membership website has provided me with interpretation job referrals in and out of Georgia. The annual conference, webinars, training, and networking are some of the benefits I have enjoyed. I have learned new interpreting techniques and tricks since I joined the AAIT. Through this networking, I was able to get an interpreting job with the Kentucky Court system for Nepali language interpreting assignments. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s annual conference could not happen. I missed networking and seeing many friends in my profession.
I became a member of the Atlanta Association of Interpreters and Translators (AAIT) in 2007 to make connections with other colleagues in Atlanta, GA, and to develop my career of over 25 years in the context of current professional guidelines. I have benefited from the wealth of experience found in so many of my colleagues with whom I’ve worked in conferences and I can say we have now become great friends. During this time of Covid-19 restrictions, the AAIT has offered helpful webinars to communicate where our business is heading and how to best be prepared for it. Lastly, and certainly the most important benefit of being a member of the AAIT, clients can search and contact me directly. Thank you AAIT!
I would like to thank the AAIT for providing its members with the opportunity for professional growth through conferences and training such as skill-building workshops for Interpreters and Translators but what I like the most is the opportunity to network and make friends.
