MassRID Call for Leadership

Members:

 

 

MassRID will hold elections in May 2014 for our four officers: President, Vice-President, Secretary & Treasurer.  We need nominations - please consider nominating yourself or someone you think would be a good candidate.  Since we have no nominations committee, please pass your nominations to me at president@massrid.org.
I will stay on as an ex officio member of the board and will help guide the new officers.  The regional reps will overlap the first year of the term of the new officers until May 2015.
This is a great opportunity to learn new skills, develop leadership, and work with a fantastic group of people who are committed to the growth of interpreting as a field and who will fight in support of Deaf people's rights.
