FIT Roundtable

Delegates are invited from all of Europe's professional associations for translators and interpreters, including from those who are not yet full members of FIT or FIT Europe

Professionalizing Your Association: Establishing Best Practices in Running a Professional Membership

Further details on venue and booking options will be released in due course.

Professional associations are invited to submit proposals for presentations on aspects of their corporate governance or management that they wish to share with the meeting during the morning session. Presentations should be no longer than 30 minutes, plus 15 minutes for questions. They should explain how your association has dealt with a specific aspect of its management, such as member qualification, managing decentralized board meetings, delegation of powers, regionalization and financial management. During the afternoon session, all delegates will have the opportunity to discuss questions arising in the morning, with the aim of producing a blueprint for newly professionalizing associations.
