APCI celebrated its 40th anniversary on 20 October. At the general meeting, Alan Thompson, who previously served as the Association’s Secretary, was elected to be the new Chairman of APCI’s Committee. He succeeded Geoffrey Buckingham, who joined the EULITA Executive Committee in April 2014.

TEPIS President Danuta Kierzkowska, who founded the Polish Society of Sworn and Specialized Translators almost 25 years ago, stepped down a few weeks ago and passed the torch to Zofia Rybinska, formerly a Vice-President of TEPIS. At its general meeting, TEPIS also bestowed honorary membership upon several distinguished persons who have cooperated with TEPIS in many areas. EULITA Vice-President Christiane Driesen was one of the laureates.
