The Administrators and the members of the Leadership Council invite the members of the ATA Interpreters Division to join us in a conference call. We will report on the work we have done, let you know about our current projects, and listen to your feedback.

Please register for the CI designation promptly, because it takes a bit of time to process it. The details are here:
