PUP would like to congratulate its Mexican members, especially Dr. Antonieta Jiménez, member of PUP's board of directors, and Dr. Manuel Gándara, technical support member, for the newly established Mexican Association of Heritage Interpreters or InterpatMx. Antonieta serves as the new executive director and Manuel is the new president of the board of directors.
This is the first interpretation association in Latin America, finally giving voice to the region among other associations in the world, principally in developed countries. The association was supported also by PUP advisor Dr. Sam Ham who receives a hearty acknowledgment on the home page as well as PUP director Jon Kohl who offers some words of encouragement. The association also received significant support from PUP partner, the National Association for Interpretation in the United States. PUP looks forward to healthy collaboration with InterpatMx in pursuit of the professionalization of this discipline in Latin America. See the website here and a blog in Spanish by Dr. Jiménez introducing the organization here.
