We are in hot Phoenix, Arizona, attending the RID Region V and NAD conference.

We are excited to announce an open call for four volunteer leadership groups.  Those groups are:

The Ethical Practices System Review Task Force and the Code of Professional Conduct Review Task Force will continue their work until completed.  The Pro-Bono Work Group and the Certification Committee will work for one year, from 2016-2017.

During the June 30, 2016, RID Board meeting, the Board approved the scope of work for each of the four volunteer leadership groups mentioned.  To view those documents please visit

During the 2016 Region conferences, the Board will be engaging with members and encouraging them to apply to serve on one of these volunteer groups.

We encourage you to reflect on your ability to serve, including time, energy, and interest.  The Board needs your support and assistance to conduct the work of the organization.  RID members need your support and assistance to further our mission and vision.  Please consider applying.  


Interested members are asked to fill out the Volunteer Leadership Application Form:

The form will ask you to share your past committee experience, if any – you can reply in English and/or you can post a link to an ASL response.  You will also be asked to upload a letter of interest and a resume.

The deadline for submission of this information is August 31, 2016.

Thank you!
