Experience the power of knowledge sharing by becoming an ATIA mentor! 

If you are a certified ATIA member, you have the opportunity to benefit from developing a reciprocal mentorship relationship with an associate ATIA member.

As ATIA is piloting this project, we are currently in the first phase: mentor recruitment. If you are interested in the possibilities below, email our Development Coordinator, Nakita Valerio, at development@atia.ab.ca today to be listed in our online directory as a willing mentor. Associate members can then search mentors in their language combinations.

Both members will agree to the ATIA Letter of Agreement/Understanding and your relationship will be underway!

  • Mentors assess mentee translations and provide feedback

  • There is the possibility for a mentorship relationship to count towards ATIA Professional Development Policy requirements (To be announced) in the near future
