I am glad to take this chance to resume our conversation after these very sad past few months…
First of all, I hope you are all safe and your families and friends are too.
Here in Italy, we are reading with great concern about the rapid spread of Covid-19 in the United States – our thoughts are with you.
As for the activities of the ATA and our Italian Language Division:
Last week, the ATA Conference Organizer, Madalena Sánchez Zampaulo made an official announcement stating that ATA61 will be held in a completely virtual mode. The message was sent to all ATA members by email, as well as through the ATA social media channels, including the ILD Facebook Page (by the way, do not forget to “like” it!).
We’re looking forward to receiving more details, such as the program, registration fees, sessions and social events.
Until then, I’d like to thank all ILD members who submitted presentation proposals for ATA61 in Boston. We sincerely hope you will be able to give them even in virtual mode! We are all looking forward to watching you from home!
How about meeting up – here and on our Facebook page and Gmail group – to plan some social events during the Virtual Boston 2020?
In the meantime, we are planning to make the most of our brand-new website by posting more content, so stay tuned!
