• 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

  • Florida Int’l University & ATIF

EXTRA! EXTRA! Seeking Newbies and Buddies

Helen Eby wants you!
Are you going to the ATA Conference in Chicago? Then read this message:

As of today, here is the count:

Newbies: 81
Buddies: 45

We would like to have a one-to-one ratio if possible. Why would you want to be a buddy?

It gives you a fresh perspective on the Conference. You get to see it from someone else’s point of view.
Newcomers to the Conference are our colleagues. Getting to know them is great!
It’s our turn to help out.

What kind of commitment does it involve?
1. Come to the “pairing up” session on Wednesday at 5, just before the opening banquet. Not too many things are scarier than walking into a room full of 1500 people and knowing exactly nobody, having no idea what is happening, etc.

2. Have a meal together. This could be continental breakfast, lunch, whatever.

3. Go to a session together. I believe there are over 150 sessions, so there should be one you are both interested in! By the way, going to sessions that are not on your list might be surprisingly interesting anyway. Those have been some of my favorites!

So… cold you please sign up and be a buddy? We need you…
