AIIC Asia Pacific regional event

AIIC Asia Pacific held a regional event in Bangkok on 10-11 August. The Asia Pacific regional training event, on 10 August, comprised two workshops with Michelle Hof: Retour Interpreting into English in the morning, and a Consecutive Note-Taking Refresher in the afternoon. The 24 participants included AIIC members, pre-candidates and non-members, with a variety of A languages from Thai, Burmese and Khmer to Russian, Kazakh, Azerbaijani and Spanish. The Asia Pacific regional meeting took pace on Sunday: a full day of presentations, discussions and seminars attended by 30 Asia Pacific members plus AIIC President Uros Peterc.  This was the largest attendance ever at a regional meeting in our geographically spread out region.

VEGA Brazil BarCamp

More than 30 colleagues were instrumental to the success the Vega BarCamp held on 3 August in Rio. The perfect formula that brought together members and non-member started with a VEGA presentation, followed by five other presentations proposed by participants themselves. A networking lunch followed, and the day ended with the discussion of four themes of interest, also proposed by attending colleagues. AIIC Brasil thanks the Conference Interpretation Course at PUC-RJ University for hosting the event.

Mais de 30 colegas contribuiram para o sucesso do BarCamp Vega realizado em 3 de agosto no Rio de Janeiro. Em uma fórmula perfeita de aproximação entre membros e não membros, tivemos uma palestra VEGA e 5 apresentações propostas pelos próprios participantes. Em seguida, todos se reuniram para um networking lunch antes da discussão de 4 temas de interesse da profissão também sugeridos pelos presentes. A AIIC Brasil agradece o curso de Formação de Intérpretes da PUC-RJ por sediar o evento.
