To NEaT members,
Thank you all for your participation in NEaT activities in 2014, and I hope to see you again and often in 2015.
In 2014 we legally registered Nordic Editors and Translators with twenty founding members. We formed a professional standards committee and a committee to build the website and other media (both of which are still open for members to join). The website is up at www.nordicedit.fi, and we have a presence on Facebook and Twitter. NEaT cooperated with SKTL (Suomen kääntäjien ja tulkkien liitto) to teach a seminar, and we had our first end of the year Christmas celebration with a lecture from Andrew Chesterman, who is now our first honorary member.
Last year was a busy year with much organization work behind the scenes, and now that we have become a registered organization, we have much work to do next year to make this group what we envision it to be. NEaT will become what the members build it to be. We need volunteers to teach seminars, to plan cooperation with other organizations, to suggest and run activities and meetups, to write content for the website, and to serve on committees, in short, to help build an organization.
Let me know if you can help. I am looking forward to a wonderful and busy 2015.
