American Translators Association Committees

The Association has established a number of standing and ad hoc committees to address issues that affect individual ATA members as well as the organization as a whole. Committee Chairs, all of whom must be voting members of the Association, are appointed by the ATA President.

The ATA Bylaws designate the following standing committees: Executive, Finance and Audit, Ethics, Membership, and Nominating and Leadership Development. The purpose of each standing committee is also outlined in the Bylaws. Other committees, whether standing or ad hoc, are established as needed by the Board of Directors.

ATA is a volunteer-driven organization and member participation is the strength behind many of the Association’s programs and events. There are many opportunities for members to get involved, give back to the Association, work with fellow members, and broaden their professional network.

An Annual Committees Report is available here as a PDF document. Please click the committee name for specific objectives and charges. Committee members can be viewed here.
