Demystifying NZSTI

Everything you ever wanted to know about NZSTI

Presenter: Stefan Grand-Meyer

Are you a new member of NZSTI, or have you been a member for a while now but are still unsure of what NZSTI does and how it operates? Are you interested in contributing to the organisation’s future?
Come along to this workshop to find out more about NZSTI, its role and activities, and gain a better understanding as to how NZSTI can support you and your professional activity. As well as taking this opportunity to launch the Society’s new multimedia ‘Welcome to NZSTI’ initiative in support of new members, we will explore and discuss together the future of NZSTI and in particular, of its professional development programme: what are the projects and initiatives that you would like NZSTI to support, organise or set up?
This interactive session is intended for translators and interpreters interested in making the most of their NZSTI membership and in contributing ideas to NZSTI’s future professional development initiatives.
