The International Association of Conference Interpreters (AIIC – Association internationale des interprètes de conférence) was founded in 1953. It represents over 3,000 members present in over 100 countries. The association has a strict admissions procedure based on a peer review system, intended to guarantee high-quality interpreting and professionalism. Candidates must be sponsored by interpreters who have been AIIC members for at least five years.
AIIC members are often also member of a local organization in their home country.
