GAHI congratulates and welcomes to the world stage a new interpretive association in Mexico, InterpatMx! Under the leadership of President Manuel Gándara Vázquez and Executive Director María Antonieta Jiménez Izarraraz, the Asociación Mexicana de Intérpretes del Patrimonio (Mexican Association of Heritage Interpreters) launched its website this month.
“Many thanks to the National Interpretation Association of the United States, which with more than 50 years of experience accompanied us in our first steps, still exploratory, for the creation of InterpatMx,” Jiménez Izarraraz said. “For a week, its members, led by Jay Miller, Margo Carlock, and Paul Caputo, shared important materials and provided us with invaluable recommendations, as an endorsement and support of our idea of contributing to the union and training of interpreters in Mexico.”
We look forward to working with our new partners in Mexico!
