Oklahoma Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (OKRID) is an affiliate chapter of the national Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (RID). OKRID is an association of RID-certified, QAST-certified, EIPA evaluated, and uncertified interpreters. Included in our ranks are professional interpreters, interpreting students, deaf interpreters and other interested members of the Deaf community. All of our members are concerned with improving the quality of service and communication between hearing and Deaf in Oklahoma.
The purpose of OKRID is to promote professionalism in the field of interpreting. Realizing the importance of peer interaction and support, OKRID holds annual business meetings for the purposes of exchanging information, presenting updates on new legislation, providing skill-building workshops, and encouraging networking among its members.
