• ATIF Year VI

    One week shy of ATIF’s fifth anniversary, the Board announced the appointment of an Interim Board to lead the Association in 2015.

    Giovanna Lester and Daniela Guanipa will take the helm of ATIF from January 1 through December 31, assisted by Maria Mallarino, Emmy Prieto, Dianna McCrary, Sylvia Korwek and Carmen Sáenz. You can learn more about our new Board by visiting our website (www.atifonline.org), under About/Board.

    The Interim Board was appointed to get ATIF ready for this year's elections, lead the organization back to its original Business Plan by aligning its growth, market reality and membership expectations, to receive the 56th ATA Annual Conference in style, among other things. The Interim Board has a one year term. Its members are veterans, former board members, as well as new individuals. The mix is intended to ensure continuity and insert new perspectives into our work.

    We believe in ATIF. We count on your vote of confidence and support of our Interim Board. ATIF’s commitment to its membership is reflected in the actions we take to ensure that the best interest of the members remains our main focus.

  • Int’l Medical Interpreters Association & ATIF

    "It is great for Florida.

    I hope that the IMIA and ATIF can work side by side in a collaborative way so that each promote each other's work and IMIA can serve as a resource to ATIF members that specialize in medical interpreting just as ATIF can serve as a resource to IMIA Florida members that want to broaden their horizons. Our call will be for all our FL members to support and join the only state association ATIF and we hope that ATIF will encourage their medical interpreter members to join IMIA which is the only national trade association for medical interpreters."

    Izabel Arocha, IMIA President, February 2010

News for Interpreters in the Florida Courts

Good Afternoon, All:

The Court Interpreter Certification Board has filed a petition with the Florida Supreme Court proposing amendments to the Florida Rules for Certification and Regulation of Spoken Language Court Interpreters.  Proposed changes under SC14-1055 would extend standards in a manner uniformly applying them, with some limitations, to all persons providing spoken language court interpreting services in any court or court-related proceeding.  The Board submits the petition for purposes of ensuring the quality of interpretation and accountability of interpreters will not differ substantially from one court or court-related proceeding to the next.

Interested persons wishing to file comments with the Court must do so in accordance with guidelines published in the July 15, 2014 edition of The Florida Bar News, which guidelines are accessible online at The Florida Bar News July 15, 2014.  The same notice appears on the Court’s website at Florida Supreme Court.
