Celebrate the coming of spring with JAT's online networking event, Spring JAT with members from Special Interest Groups (SIGs), Regional Activity Committee (RAC), the IJET-31 Committee, and the JAT Board. Under the concept, "Open Day," this event is perfect for those who want to learn more about JAT membership, and for current members who want to know how to make the most of their membership.

As in previous online networking sessions, we will start with a brief intro before opening up breakout session rooms for people to move between freely and enjoy conversation with different crowds.

JAT SIGs and RACs offer learning opportunities and create a place to exchange ideas and insights for professional translators and interpreters as well as anyone interested in the profession.

In Spring JAT, each room will have a unique topic led by one of the groups taking part, so you can visit the room of your interest. Take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to participate in Spring JAT wherever you are in the world. We look forward to seeing you!
