ATC To Launch Associate Membership Category

ATC to launch Associate Membership category

In January 2020, the ATC is excited to launch an Associate Member category. This new category aims to increase the ATC’s impact on improving standards and widen its reach as a representative of the language services industry in the UK.

Associate Membership is open to UK and overseas language industry companies who will be able to access a range of member benefits and the ATC’s initiatives which are carried out on behalf of its members. The category has accessible entry criteria but all Associate Members must demonstrate commitment to fair business practices through compliance with the ATC’s Code of Professional Conduct.

Existing memberships will be upgraded to an Accredited Membership category. This demonstrates the member has undergone the ATC’s rigorous background checks for financial and operational viability and quality management practices. Accredited Members retain the prestige and benefits of full membership, including exclusive use of the ATC Certification Stamp and the right to run for Council.
