ALC Member Spotlight

Indy Vega, CEO of CCI Group

Indy recommends that new members to the ALC do all they can to take advantage of the opportunities they are presented with. She encourages members to participate in every activity, WhatsApp group message, or Facebook group. Experiences such as listening to the webinars and going to conferences have given Indy opportunities to connect with others and learn more about the industry, changing her company vision in ways she never thought possible. The feeling she gets, working with the LSPs she used to work for, has been priceless.

Jordan Evans, CEO of The Language Network

Jordan recommends that new members to the ALC attend the conferences. Attending the Annual Conference and the UnConferenceTM have been great learning experiences for Language Network in the past. He also recommends joining the WhatsApp and asking your peers questions. “This association is one of the best for collaboration and camaraderie,” says Evans. The most value is seen when you not only join the ALC, but when you also take advantage of the connections, engage, and build relationships in the group.

Who We Are

The Association of Language Companies (ALC) is a trade association representing language service companies (LSCs) in the United States and internationally. As a trade association, it is also our responsibility to represent the industry to the rest of the world. ALC is focused on increasing visibility and positions itself as the voice of the industry in the United States. The association works closely with language advocacy groups and federal and state lobbying groups. ALC has committees and members active in building new industry standards to both guide and protect professional language companies. With ALC’s academic outreach initiative, ALC BridgeTM, the Association is building the framework for bringing together LSCs and the academic institutions that are teaching future linguists and employees. ALC provides valuable information to both members and nonmembers with its one-of-a-kind industry survey, and with updates on government issues, industry trends, and standards. From the online Forums to the in-person events, ALC brings together the people that lead these companies so that we can all learn from each other. These connections develop into strong partnerships, and even friendships. ALC works hard to give companies several opportunities to find each other for collaboration, networking, knowledge sharing, and mentoring.
