RID is a member-driven organization. The legislation of RID comes from our founding documents, the governance of our volunteer leaders, and membership motions made at our biennial business meetings.

Guiding Documents

The organization bylaws contain the most fundamental principles and rules regarding the nature of RID, such as how directors are elected, how meetings of directors are conducted, and so on. These bylaws are amended according to member motions and referred to in every act of legislation for RID. RID also seeks partnerships with organizations that share common goals through memorandums of understanding. RID is committed to compliance with the antitrust laws of this country, which laws prohibit anti-competitive behavior, regulate unfair business practices, and encourage competition in the marketplace.
