Dear friends,

It has been over a year and the virus refuses to leave us alone! The second wave is upon us it seems and I am praying that each one of you is doing fine and that things are looking up on the work front. These are indeed difficult times for a lot of businesses and that is precisely why we have decided to pick webinar topics that we think would give you some ideas around revenue generation or cost optimisation.

Going forward, we also plan to run surveys on a variety of topics every now and then. I hope you took the recent one on Labour Law compliance for mandatory leaves for employees. Over time, these surveys will allow us to standardise major systems and processes across our industry and define best practices that will help build a more professional image of our industry.

I am also keenly watching the developments as far as the newly announced National Language Translation Mission is concerned and we hope to leverage any developments there for the benefit of our industry in general and our members in particular. If you have questions or suggestions regarding this, please free to write to me so that I can start collating a document that can be used at a later date.

On a different note, I would also like to urge you to contribute actively and proactively as we continue to build CITLoB. You can do so by:

  • using your official CITLoB Member logo as a market differentiator on your website, in your email signature and in all your business communication,
  • asking all the freelancers you work with to become Members of CITLoB-ALP,
  • giving priority to freelancers and LSPs that are CITLoB-ALP and CITLoB Members,
  • asking Asavari / Rasika to circulate information relating to any projects or job opening you have among our paid members

I am counting on your support. Take care and stay safe. Happy reading and happy CITLoBing.
