By now you may have seen the four surveys being conducted by the NAD-RID Reputable Agency Task Force (RATF). RATF was created in response to the number of spoken language interpreter agencies entering the field of providing ASL interpreting services and repeated concerns shared about the impact on the profession and the Deaf community.

RATF aims to research a mechanism through which we can identify reputable agencies and organizations providing sign language interpretation services in community settings. We need information from you about what makes a good interpreter referral agency. To help identify qualities of a reputable agency, as well as seeking your input on a process for consumers to identify reputable agencies, we have four surveys currently being distributed:

We need YOUR help! These surveys won’t be effective unless we can get as many people as possible to respond candidly. Can we count on you to help us in this very important work by identifying stakeholders in your area, as well as disseminating these surveys accordingly?

There is less than a week to submit feedback on these surveys. Deadline for responses is October 1, 2014. Please send the surveys out via your e-distribution lists and social media channels.  If you have any questions, please direct them to ratf@rid.org.

Thank you in advance for your support,

Nancy Berlove and Stephanie Feyne
