ALTA42 Work Exchange Application
The American Literary Translators Association
42nd Annual Conference:

Sight and Sound
November 7 - 10, 2019
Rochester, New York

Thank you for your interest in ALTA's conference work exchange program. ALTA's annual conference would not be possible without the hard work of volunteers to ensure that events run smoothly and to guarantee the best time for all attendees.

In exchange for free conference registration, volunteers help with registration, translator-editor flash sessions, offsite events, and a variety of other responsibilities. Attendees who volunteer for 6 or more hours will be offered free conference registration.

This program is aimed at individuals who might not otherwise be able to attend the conference due to financial constraints. Preference will be given to those individuals, and those who can arrive on Thursday for volunteer orientation. The program is also a great opportunity to find out what makes the ALTA community so special, and for first-time attendees to meet fellow translators.

Note: please wait on purchasing your conference registration if you intend to apply for this program. Approved volunteers receive complimentary registration in exchange for their time, and we are unable to provide refunds for previously purchased registrations. But don't worry! Applicants will be notified if they have been accepted before Early Bird Registration closes on October 7, 2019.
