Idaho Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf

Idaho Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (IdahoRID) is the only professional organization for sign language interpreters in the state of Idaho. It is an affiliate chapter of the national Registry of the Interpreters of the Deaf, a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Idaho RID was established in 1973.

As explained on the RID website, IdahoRID and national RID are membership organizations representing the professionals who facilitate communication between people who are deaf or hard of hearing and people who can hear. Interpreters serve as professional communicators in a vast array of settings such as: churches, schools, courtrooms, hospitals and theaters, as well as on political grandstands and television.

IdahoRID’s role is to support our membership by providing the foundation needed to launch and sustain careers while ensuring quality service to the Deaf community.
