Hello There!

I’m Kelly Decker, RID’s Secretary. The board has been working diligently over these past few days.  We’ve primarily focused on the internal and external structures that affect us as an organization and ultimately the Deaf community. 

These internal structures include our work in identifying robust and efficient work practices for our councils, committees, task forces and member sections.  We reviewed the progress of the White Paper work groups and the Policy and Procedure Manual (PPM).  All of these moving parts affect our overall trajectory as an organization.  Should you have an interest in contributing to the work of these internal structures, please  reach out to the board. We are always in need of further expertise. 

Additionally, we reviewed what a registry (listing our members) means.  Does it fit with our current bylaws and original articles of incorporation?  How is this public registry serving and impacting the Deaf communi
