ATC Networking Event – Leeds, 26 February 2019
ATC’s Council will decamp to Leeds on 26 February 2019, hosted by thebigword at their brand new training centre. You are cordially invited to join us there to find out the latest on safeguarding your existing EU staff through Brexit and to find out how the ATC will be lobbying on your behalf to secure future immigration of translators and interpreters into the UK.
ATC’s Chief Executive Raisa McNab will kick the topic off by outlining the likely immigration scenario affecting LSPs recruiting from outside of the UK, post-Brexit, and how the ATC is looking to get the best deal for our industry.
Other highlights of the day will include immigration lawyer Louis MacWilliam’s overview on how Brexit will affect EU nationals currently in the UK, and how LSPs can safeguard their current staff through these changes.
Simultaneously, Raisa McNab will host a Brexit round table discussion on the direction and channels ATC Brexit immigration lobbying should take, engaging ATC members in a joint battle.
Look out for the invitation which will be sent out to you soon!
An active association that brings people together
The ATC is an active, forward-thinking association that thrives on continually raising standards, ensuring language services are properly represented and provided. A key element of this endeavour is bringing members together regular to network through Open Council meetings, seminars and workshops. This includes participating in professional development, discovering the most appropriate technologies to support the successful running of our businesses, and engaging our members in cutting edge debate, to form opinion and lead the way.
Networking for ATC members happens both on and offline. There are social media channels on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn; newsletters and other updates are regularly sent to members; the blogs on the website feature contributions members; the latest news and the ATC website itself, all provide an online network that is easy to access, quick to review and open to fresh, relevant contributions. This digital network enables members to feel informed and involved with all that we do on your behalf.
With regular events, seminars, workshops, our annual AGM, our Council Conventions and our annual flagship Language Industry Summit, the ATC works hard to deliver professional, high calibre training, development and educational opportunities, to suit members’ individual needs.
ATC members benefit hugely from regular contact with their industry peers. Learning from other business owners, finding complementary LSPs with whom you can partner, enhancing your own commercial practices through recognising a better model, brings invaluable advantages to business that wouldn’t otherwise naturally happen.
Over the years, many members decide to get more involved in driving the ambitions and focus of the ATC, attending our AGM, being elected to Council, joining our committees. If this next step is of interest, please find out more, get in touch here.
