NOTIS social events tend to be around Seattle, since that’s where most of our event-organizing board members reside. To include members from other areas in the fun, the NOTIS Board has approved a new program to reimburse members up to $50 once per calendar year for social events they organize at least 30 miles away from Seattle that are attended by 4 or more NOTIS members.
Here’s how it works:
- Plan your event, and email the NOTIS board at least two weeks in advance of the planned event so we can help publicize it.
- Invite other local language professionals, and make sure at least 4 NOTIS members who live at least 30 miles away from Seattle plan to attend. Consider inviting students of translation and interpretation, local businesses engaged in translation and interpretation, and all the translators and interpreters you know.
- Enjoy your event!
- Take pictures (with attendees’ permission to post them without names on NOTIS social media), and make a list of attendees’ names and email addresses.
- Email us your two best pictures, the list of attendees’ names and email addresses, and receipts for your costs. NOTIS will reimburse you up to $50 for event costs such as venue fees, advertising, and food or drink.
For future reference, the full policy is also described in the members-only section of our website.
We hope this new program will spread the benefits of NOTIS membership more widely throughout all five of our states (Washington, Oregon, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho). We can’t wait to hear about the fun you have, wherever you are!
