Every month AIIC's regional bureaus, committees and groups host events and courses around the globe. Featured here are some glimpses of a few AIIC events during November.

AIIC VEGA BarCamp - Sao Paulo

Richard Laver, Vega’s representative in Brazil, organized a BarCamp in Sao Paulo on 24 November. The day included an  awareness-raising presentation, followed by round of presentations ranging from what interpreters should know about SI equipment to interpreting in very emotional circumstances. Participants discussed topics such as how much detail to include in quotes and tips on accounting. The 30 participants exchanged a wealth of professional experiences at a networking lunch, and both students and experienced AIIC colleagues enjoyed the collegiate atmosphere.
