This is a friendly reminder that on Saturday, September 21st, NOTA will be hosting the Client Relations & Payment Practices Workshop, which will be followed by our traditional NOTA Annual Meeting & Dinner.
The Client Relations & Payment Practices Workshop will be presented by Ted Wozniak, a freelance German to English financial translator and a current member of the ATA Board of Directors.
