washington leaders forum

Hi all!

Boostlingo will join the Joint National Committee for Languages (JNCL) and the Association of Language Companies (ALC) on August 8, 2018 in Washington DC for the ALC DC Leaders Forum.
The forum was created to bring leaders in the language industry to Washington, D.C. to:

  • Learn about federal policy and regulatory issues facing the industry and what is being done to address them.
  • Meet with members of Congress and Executive Branch agencies with jurisdiction over relevant issues.
  • Network with fellow industry leaders to strategize solutions to shared concerns.

One of the main issues to be addressed is the Independent Contractor Classification issue which has a profound effect on our industry. The language industry has traditionally relied on a professional workforce that is comprised of both freelance contractors and regular employees. The Leaders Forum hopes to raise awareness with policymakers of the important issues surrounding reclassification and its direct impact on the language industry. The Leaders Forum hopes to successfully advocate for sensible and informed legislation around this rapidly developing issue.

Boostlingo Co-Founder and VP of Marketing and Business Development, Dieter Runge will be travelling to DC to join in the conversation.

If you are a language services agency, language technology company or freelance interpreter and would like to share your insight or opinion on this particular issue or other concerns, please email Dieter directly who will be happy to take the message forward to Washington.
Please email him at [email protected]

 

Thanks!
