CATI Networking Socials

 CATI Social gatherings are a great way for interpreters, translators, students, and other interested in the language industry to get together to "talk shop". Bring your colleagues, bring your friends! We hope to see you at one of the
 next CATI Socials. All area Socials are posted to the home page of this site as well as social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, and Linkedin).

TRIANGLE, NC: August 21st at the City Club Raleigh, 150 Fayetteville Street- 28th Floor, Raleigh NC.  From 7:00pm to 8:00pm Networking, 8:00pm to 8:45pm MEMBERS ONLY for a presentation.                Topic: We have all heard about the subpoena of the Russian interpreter for Trump's conference with Putin in Helsinki this month. As translators/interpreters, we have to follow legal guidelines besides our professional codes. Therefore it's critical for us to learn how to protect ourselves while serving our clients. In our August Social, Attorney Houston Barnes will discuss the legal aspects of the language service business, from forming an entity to contracts and dealing with clients.  Parking is free on the street after 5 pm. There is also parking in the Alexander Square parking deck across the street. Please RSVP by Sunday August 19. Contact Stefanie at CATIadmin@catiweb.org for more information.
