RID Board Meeting

Thursday, December 8, 2016

Hello!  I am Ritchie Bryant, Deaf Member-at-Large.  And, I am Joshua Pennise, Secretary.  Greetings from Alexandria, VA., where the RID Board of Directors is meeting December 8-11.  We have a busy agenda over the next several days—including conducting interviews with candidates for the Executive Director position.  Vice President West Oyedele is facilitating this board meeting as President Walker was unable to come due to the passing of his father.  Our thoughts and condolences are with him.

The purpose of this vlog is to report on the events of Day 1.

This meeting brings the current composition of the board together for the first time.  With the recent appointment of three new regional reps

[name and region if you are inclined], much of our first day was spent orienting new board members to roles, responsibilities, processes and procedure.
