On November 17th of this year, language professionals living in and around the city of La Plata, Argentina are invited to join site staff and other ProZ.com members in an informal get-together known as a powwow. Today I had the chance to speak with the organizer of this event, staff member Lucia Leszinsky, on the role and purpose of powwows at ProZ.com.
Some key points of this interview are as follows:
- What are powwows, and what happens at these events?
- Who can attend powwows, and who can organize them?
- Is there a fee to attend a powwow?

There are over twenty powwows that are scheduled to be held in various countries by the end of this year. So, if you’re interested in meeting other ProZ.com members and networking with fellow language professionals, please take a look at the list of upcoming powwows found here: http://www.proz.com/powwows/
