FLD Meet-Up at the 58th ATA Conference Being Held in Washington, DC in October 2017

French Language Division Mixer/Meet-Up

When: Thursday, October 26, 2017 – from 6 to 7 pm

Washington, DC – The Sidecar Bar (at the conference hotel, the Washington Hilton)

In addition to the official FLD dinner, the French Language Division will also be holding an informal mixer/meet-up at the Sidecar bar at the conference hotel, on the Thursday evening of the conference. This informal event does not require reservations and the only cost is what you order at the bar.

Take advantage of this opportunity to meet your fellow FLD members in a relaxed environment, check in with old friends and make new connections. Feel free to drop in to this casual event for a few minutes or stay for the entire hour. This will also be a great place to organize your own dinner with FLD colleagues if you are unable to attend the official dinner.*

*This year’s official FLD dinner will be on Friday, October 27, 2017, at 7 pm and must be reserved and paid for in advance. See the FLD website for more details: http://www.ata-divisions.org/FLD/index.php/2017/08/15/fld-dinner-ata58/. Please be aware that we do expect the official dinner to sell out.
