Did you know that there is a dedicated group of GLD members living in Europe?* And that we meet up once a year for a workshop? If not, please read the latest issue of Interaktiv for editor Matt Baird’s article on the history of the group and a report on the latest workshop (which was reprinted in the online edition of the ATA Chronicle).
Traditionally, we have announced the upcoming workshop to the greater GLD membership at the GLD meeting at the ATA conference. Since we meet in February, the announcement has often come too late for fellow GLD members living stateside to join us. So, drum roll: The Fifth Annual GLD Members in Europe Workshop will take place on February 3, 2018, in Berlin and will be accompanied by social events on February 2 and 4. Please mark your calendars.
Here is information about the workshop venue:
“Saal der Begegnung”, Myer’s Hotel in Prenzlauer Berg: www.myershotel.de
The on-site organizers have reserved a block of rooms (10 Komfort-small-Doppelzimmer zur Einzelnutzung, 10 Premium-Doppelzimmer zur Einzelnutzung ranging in price between €79 and €112 depending on the room, but including breakfast) which participants can reserve themselves under “Tagung ATAGD 2018” in the same hotel.
The hotel has requested that rooms be reserved by the end of October 2017.
We hope to open registration for the workshop by the end of August. By then we should know more about the workshop program and social events.
All the best from sunny Aachen,
