The Colorado Interpreters & Translators Association has gained a new member who may be known to many in the translation industry: Karen Tkaczyk, a French into English technical translator, recently moved to beautiful Colorado and joined our association. It was my pleasure having Karen over for lunch and having the chance to discuss our profession with such a dedicated and thorough professional. Also a great cook, she was nice enough to share her Poires pochées au vin rouge (Red Wine-Poached Pears) recipe with me!

Elsbeth Rozanski

Meet the new CITA membership coordinator: Elsbeth Rozanski

At its last meeting, the Board of the Colorado Interpreters & Translators Association decided that CTA, as a growing association, needs someone to help manage the membership process. We asked our members to volunteer for the role of membership coordinator, an appointed position that is not part of the elected Board. Several people applied, all highly motivated to volunteer for CTA, and their excellent statements made the Board’s decision quite difficult. We are excited to announce that our new membership coordinator is Elsbeth Rozanski of Boulder. I caught up with Elsbeth and asked her a few questions to help our members get to know her a little bit better.
