AIIC staff interpreters meet in Africa

For the first time in its history, the AIIC Staff Interpreters’ Committee held its annual meeting on the African continent. In September 2011, superb hosts at the United Nations International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda welcomed a large group of staff and freelance interpreters, including delegates from over ten organisations, to two days of productive meetings in Arusha, Tanzania. The theme of this year’s session was training. Opportunities and initiatives in member organisations were highlighted, and guest speaker Jibola Sofolahan provided an overview of activities on the African continent.
