Right before Christmas convening letters were sent to the full and associate members of EULITA announcing that the first general assembly will be held in Hannover, Germany, on Sunday, 27 March 2011. An informal meeting open to all persons interested in EULITA is scheduled for Saturday, 26 March 2011, from 4.30 to 6.00 p.m. (place: Hannover Congress Centrum, “Blauer Saal”, Theodor-Heuss-Platz 1–3, D-30175 Hannover, Germany). The venue was chosen to give legal interpreters and translators also the opportunity to attend the BDÜ’s “5. Gerichtsdolmetschertag” which is taking place on 25 and 26 March. Please contact EULITA at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about the informal meeting and the general assembly.
