Attending Professional Events – Canon 10 Makes it a MUST

In choosing events, efforts are made to reflect the broad interests of members, to explore new things and to expand vistas of knowledge in anything and everything related to languages, in general and in particular. I am confident they meet members’ expectations.

On the other hand, it is our obligation to participate as active interlocutors in professional “dialogues”, and to provide an atmosphere of professional exchange of opinions. Moreover that the speakers, Attorney Rob Dice; Judy Raven and Barb Niemann, respectively the President and the Curriculum Director of the Accent Reduction Institute, have generously placed themselves on the giving end of the discussion table.

The Code of Ethics for Interpreters, Canon 10 says that: “Interpreters shall continually improve their knowledge and advance the profession through activities such as professional training and education and interaction with colleagues and specialists in related fields.” Then it says that, this is achieved through participation in workshops, professional meetings, and interaction with colleagues.

In a conversation with Franco Gamero, MiTiN Vice President, he said, “Canon 10 says interpreters SHALL continue professional education and development; therefore it is a MUST.” He also said that members’ participation in the upcoming events will be reflected retroactively to the beginning of the year.

In upcoming events you’ll be able to meet colleagues from the industry, Board members and the President, who attend every event. Refreshments, coffee, and light snacks are offered. Every event has a Question & Answer session, as well as a networking session. We look forward to seeing you there!
