Save the date: ATA GLD Members in Europe to hold 6th Annual Workshop in 2019

Dear colleagues,

Mark your calendars now! The Annual Workshop of ATA GLD Members in Europe will be held on February 16 and 17, 2019 at the Deutsch-Amerikanisches Institute (DAI) in Tübingen.

What’s new this year? We’re extending the workshop to include sessions on Sunday morning from 9 to 12. This decision was based on our survey of 2018 attendees. More time will allow us to more easily accommodate a guest speaker while leaving plenty of time for smaller group sessions as well as ATA and GLD business.

One of the hallmarks of the workshop is the mix of education and social activities, and 2019 will be no different. The following social events are in the works:

  • Tour of Tübingen late afternoon on Friday (Feb. 15) followed by a pre-workshop dinner.
  • Networking dinner on Saturday evening.

Please budget between €50 and €60 for the workshop (including refreshments). Please note that the social events will not be included in the workshop registration fee and will be booked separately.

Registration is currently scheduled to open in mid-September. Watch for an announcement on the GLD list and on the GLD website. More information may follow in the next issue of interaktiv, the GLD newsletter, later this year.

If you have any suggestions for workshop topics and/or are willing to be a presenter, please let me know via email (
