The 2021 General Meeting of FIT Europe, the Regional Centre of the International Federation of Translators (FIT), took place as an online meeting on 9 September. FIT Europe represents 40,000 professional translators, interpreters, and terminologists. About 40 of the 73 member organisations attended the General Meeting, with Assointerpreti being represented by Alessandra Giordani.
The event was an opportunity to meet again, albeit only in virtual format, and to take stock of the situation. The members of the Board, including our member Gabriella Suzanne Vanzan, presented the activities carried out from 2017 to 2021 (the mandate is three years, but it has been extended by one year due to the pandemic), which you can find at this link.
The General Meeting also elected the new Board for the 2021-2024 period. The new Board consists of:
John O’Shea (PEM, Greece) – Chair
Gabriella Suzanne Vanzan (Assointerpreti, Italy) – Vice Chair
Sandra Mouton (SFT, France) – Secretary General
María Galán Barrera (Asetrad, Spain) – Treasurer
Wanda Ruiz-Brunelot (SFT, France) – Vice Chair of FIT Europe and Chair of FIT Europe Soutien
