The ATA Board voted unanimously in favor of awarding chapter status to CTA during its July 27 Board of Directors Meeting in Houston, Texas.

The vote caps months of hard work by the CTA Board in an effort to fulfill the requirements of becoming an official ATA chapter. Since the beginning of this year, the Colorado Translators Association has become a legal non-profit entity, filed for tax-exemption, organized a petition signed by 23 CTA members with ATA voting rights, and amended its bylaws to comply with legal and ATA requirements. Finally, in a referendum earlier this summer, 98% of CTA members who cast their vote on the matter voted in favor of becoming an ATA chapter.

"I would like to thank the CTA Board for all the support to make this happen," said CTA President Cris Silva in a statement announcing the great news to CTA members. "I would like to specifically acknowledge our Vice President Thais Lips for her long-term vision for chapter sustainability, focused drive, hard work and interfacing with the ATA. I would also like to recognize our Treasurer Mery Molenaar's extreme diligence, attention to details and eagle eyes in helping prepare all sorts necessary documents. Last, but certainly not least, I would also like to thank each one of our members who voted online."

Advantages of becoming an ATA chapter include:

• Chapters receive an annual 10% dues rebate from ATA (see section 5.2.3);
• Chapters are covered by ATA’s Directors and Officers Liability insurance and by ATA’s insurance covering venues for events;
• Chapters may be entitled to support from ATA for legislative actions;
• Chapters receive logistical support from ATA for mailings, meetings, etc.;
• Chapters are eligible for ATA seed money for conferences;
• Chapters are entitled to a free table at ATA Annual Conferences;
• ATA will advertise chapter events free of charge in The Chronicle and online; and
• Discounted member registration rates for Professional Development Seminars held in Chapter cities.

This is the second time Colorado translators are part of an official ATA chapter since the foundation of the Colorado Translators Association more than 30 years ago. In 1987, CTA had joined forces with the Utah Translators and Interpreters Association (UTIA) and the New Mexico Translators and Interpreters Association (NMTIA) to form the Intermountain Chapter of ATA (ICATA), which became an official ATA chapter that year in Salt Lake City. However, communication challenges and diverging interests led to the dissolution of ICATA in 1992.

Regaining ATA chapter status remained on the radar of CTA translators after that, but the association was never quite able to meet all the requirements until now. "This is indeed a great day for CTA," Silva said.
