AUSIT launches new Tasmanian sub-branch!

AUSIT is holding a general meeting to formalise a new sub-branch for Interpreters and Translators in Tasmania. The meeting will take place on 30 September in Hobart. 

Tasmania's new sub-branch will make it easier to organise social get-togethers, networking events and create the opportunity to organise local PD events.

Presenters from Victoria and elsewhere have been able to offer various PD events in the past to Tasmanian practitioners, however AUSIT (at the national level and particularly at the branch level) has become increasingly aware that this is no real substitute for having an local entity on the ground.

The Tasmanian Sub-branch of AUSIT will help break the professional isolation that practitioners so commonly experience.

AUSIT invites and welcomes any other members who’d like to play a part (even a small one). 

Formal members of the sub-committee need to be financial members of AUSIT. Other people can be co-opted to serve on the sub-committee. 

Any AUSIT member who would be interested in formally being a member of a sub-branch committee is invited to download a nomination form and return it to the address shown on the form. 

Please submit the nomination form either:

  • by scanning and emailing to secretary@ausit.org by close of business on Thu 28 Sep 17, or
  • in person at the meeting.

For additional information or any queries, please contact the General Secretary on secretary@ausit.org, or the national office on 03 9895 4473.
