Addressing Global, Regional and National issues from the seat of ACTA

This is the voice of associations of commercial translators, interpreters and terminologists around the world. The meeting agenda includes a number of important issues. In particular, the Council devoted considerable time evaluating and addressing the need for redirecting additional resources towards supporting and furthering the activities of the Regional Commercial Centers.

The council will resolve to lay down new infrastructure to ensure better communications, improve transparency and greater accountability across the Association. During the very constructive debate, the council will emphasize that all experts representing the Association at local, regional, national and international level are properly mandated and supported.

The Association and its Council see with delight the fruits of three new Initiatives of this mandate. This will be a most valuable addition to resources for accomplishing one of the key aims of our By-laws, article 4d, 4e and 4g, addressing specific aspects of running a professional association.

The truly global ISO standing committee will present its first position paper, on ISO 37100, drawing on expertise from across the Association. This will further strengthen ACTA's unique think tank.
