Local Chambers of Commerce are another source of economic continuing education points. Visit your state Chamber’s website for a listing of city and county chambers. Don’t forget to look for international chamber events in your area as well.
Regional translation and interpreting groups, including ATA Chapters and Affiliates, offer a wide array of cost-effective continuing education opportunities right in your back yard. When out of town, consider dropping in on a group's activities and racking up the credits. See ATA's Calendar of Events for regional T&I meetings and educational events.
Share Your Knowledge. Write about translation for The ATA Chronicle or another industry publication. Present at a conference, seminar or workshop. Not only will you enlighten others, but you'll also increase your profile, market yourself, and get more business.
Be an ATA Mentor or Mentee. Participating in the ATA Mentoring Program is just one more way to share your knowledge and ensure the future of our profession while earning CE points.
