When: Sunday September 18th, 2011

9am-12pm Professional Dialogue: Revisiting Standard Practices (CEUs available)

This will be a discussion led by Nathan Fowler and Evelyn Shields regarding our Standard Practices as Interpreters. Prior to their first meeting at Deaf Inc., Nathan and Evelyn conducted a survey regarding the decisions we make as interpreters and how we come to those decisions. Do we, in fact, follow "standard practices"?. Please click the blue links in this sentence if you'd like to see the report summary of their survey, and/or the notes from the first group discussion.

Online Membership Registration is here!

I'm excited to announce the ability to join or renew membership with MassRID via MassRID.org!

To join/renew your MassRID membership online, please click on the Join MassRID link on the main page, underneath our main photo. This wil bring you to the registration page. Please fill in all required information, otherwise your submission will not be accepted.

Near the bottom of the first page, you'll notice this section:

When you create a profile by joining, other members (and only other members, not the general public) will be able to search for you via our new database. You have control over which items (phone numbers, addresses, etc) other members will be able to view when they search for you. As you can see above, all of the items are checked because by default this will make them all private. Please UNCHECK whichever pieces of information you wish to share with other members.

Once you've finished this page, please click submit and you'll be brought to this page:

Here you will choose your membership type (General/Student/Supporting/Organizational). Once you've selected, click on Pay Now and you'll be brought to Paypal. Via Paypal you can pay for your membership using a Paypal account or by using a credit card. Once you've made a payment, you'll receive a confirmation email. Within a few hours you'll receive an email from Web@MassRID.org welcoming you and giving you your username and password. From there you can go to MassRID.org and login, change your password, add a profile photo (optional), and search the database for other members.

Note: once you have registered the first time, you will not need to do so again each year to renew. Instead, you'll be able to renew on the website by logging into your profile and making a new payment.

Thank you!

MassRID’s New Website!

Category

General
Video

Hello and welcome to the new MassRID website! I’m very excited to be able to share this news with you.

We’re launching the first phase of the site which will serve primarily to communicate with our membership. We’ll have news and updates on the main page, in which we’ll plan to include both video and text. If you miss an update or want to look back, you’ll be able to do so by doing a search on the right hand side of the screen. Some of you have already seen the video updates from Denise Martinez on Youtube, and if not you can look at them here on our site.

Under the MassRID Info tab in the upper right corner of the site you’ll find our Philosophy and Mission, information about board members including email addresses, our MassRID calendar, and links to other related organizations.

Our calendar page includes individual calendars for each of the Regions, whereby each regional representative can post events and important dates. For example, you’ll see our next general meeting and workshop is posted on September 19th.

The next phase, coming soon, will add our searchable database and the ability for members to sign up online and pay via PayPal. The database will be for only members to search, and you’ll have the ability to tell us what information you’d like to keep confidential. Also, for anyone who’d prefer to fill out the membership form and mail it in with a check, you will still have that option. I’ll post more information when we’re ready to launch that piece.

Please take some time to look around the site and feel free to provide constructive feedback . You can send that to me at Web@MassRID.org.

Thank you!

~Aaron Malgeri, MassRID WebGuy
