The following is an announcement that we received from Elena Langdon, the Portuguese Language Division's administrator, and we'd like to help her spread the word about the upcoming conference. This event sounds fantastic, and it's a chance to be in DC during cherry blossom season! This mid-year conference is part of the ATA's schedule of conferences. Please see below for more information and contact the conference organizers if you have any questions.
Don’t wait until the last minute! Only three more days to register with early bird rates for the 14th Mid-Year Conference of the Portuguese Language Division of the American Translators Association.

Why should you come to the PLD Mid-Year Conference (MYC) on April 8 and 9?
Reason 1: Where else can you attend 9 professional development sessions (12 hours!) all specific to Portuguese? See the program (here) for details. Language-specific conferences are also great for specializing, which can mean more money for you.
Reason 2: Don’t just network: build relationships with your most important colleagues through our 15 hours of outings and dining. Experienced colleagues have told me that they get the vast majority of their work through colleague recommendations.
Reason 3: How else can you get a room in the DC area for $149 a night, $75 if you share? Take advantage of the trip to see DC! It is cherry blossom season!
Reason 4: You can attend the talk on how to do your best on the ATA certification exam Friday, then take the exam Sunday morning at the same hotel!
