Welcome to the Oregon State Chapter of the National Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf. ORID is a professional member organization providing resources and networking for the Oregon interpreting community, the Oregon Deaf, Deaf-Blind and Hard of Hearing community.
As an affiliate chapter of RID, we work to serve the local interpreting community while supporting and upholding the mission and aspirations of the national organization. As a membership organization, the board works to follow the direction of the membership and their needs.
Currently, ORID works to provide professional development opportunities, forums for community discussions, and outlets for social interactions. In the last year, a newsletter has also been distributed and is continually evolving to meet the needs and desires of the membership.
Please join Oregon RID in improving the interpreting community of Oregon, by becoming a member, and actively participating in setting the organization’s agenda.

RID is the only national association dedicated to the professional development of interpreters and transliterators.
