The ATA Chronicle - November/December 2022 - 5

memory of our Association,
and we'll miss him dearly.
Mooch was awarded
Honorary Membership
unanimously by ATA's
Board of Directors, and it
was my privilege to present
him with this honor in
recognition for his dedication
to our Association during the
Annual Conference.
Our other Honorary
Member in 2022 is Corinne
McKay, a long-time
member, past ATA President,
and a dear friend and
colleague to so many of us.
Corinne's work has touched
the lives of translators
and interpreters all over
the world. She literally
wrote the book on how
to succeed as a freelance
translator. No really... she
wrote that book! Her books,
in addition to courses and
more than 15 years' worth
of blog posts and podcast
episodes, have been in
the hands and earbuds of
thousands of translators and
interpreters. If there ever
was an individual who has
distinguished herself in the
translation and interpreting
world, I think we can all
agree that Corinne is at the
top of the list.
Looking Ahead to 2023
I'm thankful to say that
while we've had tremendous
growth in our programs,
we're also making a smooth
transition in ATA with a
vibrant professional in our
new executive director, Kelli
Baxter. During this past year,
I was joined by the rest of
ATA's Executive Committee,
ATA Past President Corinne
McKay, Mooch, and
ATA's Assistant Executive
Director of Membership
www.ata-chronicle.online
and Communications, Mary
David, to lead the search for
our next executive director.
We had over 40 applicants
for the position, and we met
many times over a period
of six months to create the
job ad, review applications,
conduct interviews, and
select our top candidate.
Kelli comes to our
Association with a wide
range of experience in
the association world,
including a background in
data and IT, event planning,
management, and more.
Kelli stood out to the search
team from the start, and
she was our front-runner
right up to the end. We're
confident she'll continue
the good work Mooch has
done over the past many
years. You can learn more
about Kelli in her column in
this issue!
Overall, ATA remains
strong and vital. We're a
resilient association that has
made it through a pretty
tough couple of years with a
lot to show for it. I'm
looking forward to seeing
what ATA accomplishes over
the next year, but for now
I'll leave it at that and thank
everyone again who
volunteers for ATA. Without
you, we wouldn't have the
great Association we're all
able to call our professional
home. While our membership
numbers are not exactly
growing as much as we
would like, we did see at
least 200 new members join
ATA around the time of the
Annual Conference, and our
retention numbers remain
steady at 83.6%. (For
reference, anything over
80% is considered positive
in the association world.)
With that, as of a month
ago, we had 8,374 ATA
members. I encourage you to
renew your membership for
2023, do an end-of-year
assessment of your ATA
Directory profile listing, get
involved in your divisions,
and consider joining an ATA
committee. We have much
more in store for you in the
coming year!
We're a resilient
association that
has made it
through a pretty
tough couple of
years with a lot
to show for it.
