Proudly serving the Deaf and Hard of Hearing communities in Vermont.

VERMONT RID MISSION STATEMENT (2014)

 

The Vermont Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (VTRID) is a non-profit, non-partisan organization of interpreters, Deaf community members and other allies, which collaborates to ensure that high-quality American Sign Language-English interpretation throughout the state is provided with the utmost integrity and respect.

 

Together, we shall accomplish this by:

 

* Being a resource to Vermont community regarding interpreter role, services, and the field of interpreting

 

* Fostering respect, community relationships, and competence of cross-cultural interactions

 

* Encouraging and supporting interpreters in achieving and maintaining national certification

 

* Promoting the RID/NAD Code of Professional Conduct for interpreters and transliterators

 

* Providing and/or hosting workshops, trainings, and mentorship opportunities for interpreters

 

* Lobbying for key legislation in the VT State Legislature on bills affecting Deaf rights and the sign language interpreting profession
