Hello VtRiD members!
I wanted to share some news with you.
First, we have a new RID Region 1 Representative. His name is Jason Farr. from NYC area. He has jumped into the Region 1 Representative position quickly and is handling the responsibilities well.
Next, a reminder that the RID Regiion 1 Conference is happening in Brooklyn, NY during July 6 – 9, 2020.
Locally, the VtRID board has met already in October. We set the date for the upcoming general meeting in December. It is at 130p on December 14, 2019 in Essex, Vermont. This is the same day and location as the VtAD holiday party. Similar to what has happened in the past, VtRID members will have the dual benefit of attending the VtAD holiday party and the VtRID general meeting at the same time.
There are several upcoming events in November.
Saturday, November 2 — Bowling at Spare Time Lanes, starting at 1p, in Colchester, Vermont. This is hosted by Brandon Daigenault.
Saturday, November 9 — Annual thanksgiving dinner, starting at 11a, in Bellows Falls, Vermont. This is hosted by Brattleboro Deaf Club.
Saturday, November 23 — Community Paint Party, starting at 1p, in Montpelier, Vermont. This is hosted by me.
During the recent VtRID general meeting in September, the members who attended voted to bring the discussion of the proposed Bylaws change to all VtRID members. The Bylaws proposed change is related to when board members start their terms and when nominations and elections for board positions occur. More information on the Bylaws proposal will be in a separate video message.
The March 2020 general meeting will happen online either via zoom or gotomeeting. The VtRID board has not decided which platform to use. Also, the date of the meeting will be announced by the December 2019 general meeting.
The June 2020 general meeting will happen during the annual VtRID Deaf Community Day BBQ. The date is June 27, 2020. Please put that event in your your calendars.
That’s all for now. I hope all is well with you.
