RID’s Member Sections (MS) provide a relationship-building forum for RID members to share common interests, goals and concerns that are also consistent with RID’s mission and values.

As formally recognized groups of RID members, Member Sections can hold meetings at the biennial conference, regional conferences and other functions sponsored by RID or its affiliate chapters. Additionally, Member Sections frequently contribute articles to VIEWS, RID’s quarterly newsletter, to share their discussions with the entire membership.

Activities of Member Sections are determined and carried out by the MS leadership and its members, and not by RID Headquarters staff.

To join an RID Member Section, you must be an RID member.
