Are you or is someone you know interested in serving on the RID Executive Board? This summer, RID will swear in our new officers for the positions of President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Deaf Member-at-Large, and Member-at-Large for the 2019-2021 term.
In order to be presented as a candidate for one of these positions, a nomination must be submitted to Nominations@rid.org by March 31st, 2019. Nominations may be submitted by any voting member in good standing. Candidates must receive nomination signatures from at least 25 voting members in good standing (at least one member from each region). When more than one person is nominated for a position, an election will be held.
All members of the RID Board of Directors must have been certified members in good standing for at least four (4) consecutive years immediately prior to candidacy (the MAL and DMAL may be associate members for the same length of time). Duties of Board members may be found in the RID Bylaws, here: https://rid.org/about-rid/governance/bylaws/
