Language Professional Societies

The Language and International Trade Society is being phased out.  Students of different languages are encouraged to join newly formed Language Professional Societies.  Those interested may join one or more depending on their language and business culture interests. They are open to all in L&IT, business, engineering and other majors who wish to learn more about their language for specific/professional purposes.
