*Note: The signed version mistakenly mentioned December 28th as the first day of RID’s closure.


The RID Headquarters will be closed from Monday, December 26, 2016 – Monday, January 2, 2017 to enable the entire staff to spend time with their families and friends during the holiday season. There will be no staff available to respond to calls or answer emails during this period of time. Staff will return from this holiday break on Tuesday, January 3rd, 2017 and be available to assist members at that time.

Certification Cycles Ending:
It is important to note that the certification renewal cycle will reach expiration for over 2,000 Certified members on December 31, 2016. If you are unsure if you are one of these members, you can verify your renewal cycle expiration date by logging into your RID member account. You can also view your account to determine your standing in terms of meeting the certification renewal requirements. If you have any questions about your cycle please make sure to contact the Professional Development Department by December 20, 2016. Please remember to allow up to 3 business days for a response. Also, no one will be in the office after Friday, December 23rd, 2016 until our return on Tuesday, January 3rd, 2017.

Thank you, and from all of us at RID Headquarters – Happy Holidays!
