Mission Statement

 

      The New Hampshire Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (NHRID), an affiliate chapter of the national Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf, Inc., is a nonprofit membership association with a charter to promote interpreting excellence by working toward a national standard of quality. It is the mission of NHRID to work together with the Deaf community in meeting the interpreting needs of New Hampshire residents by enhancing the quality and availability of American Sign Language/English interpreters.
