Welcome to the ATA Audiovisual Division!

Welcome to the ATA Audiovisual Division


The Board of Directors approved the establishment of the Audiovisual Division at its August 2018 meeting. AVD is the Association’s 22nd Division. The Board also approved the appointments of Deborah Wexler as acting administrator and Ana Salotti as acting assistant administrator until the AVD election in October 2019.

In addition to supporting and mentoring audiovisual linguists, AVD will work to create quality professional development opportunities for its members. The division also plans to network and build relationships with media content creators and providers.

ATA members working in the audiovisual field, or members who would like to learn more about this specialty, are invited to join the division. You can join AVD and any of the other 21 divisions anytime by going to your membership account. (And, just a reminder that division memberships are included in your ATA dues, so there is no extra charge for joining.)

What is an ATA Division?
