Highlights of the CNYRID

The CNYRID and the member organizations of the Deaf Advocacy Council of CNY (DAC of CNY) have formed an ongoing collaborative relationship. This unique partnership fosters greater understanding and mutual respect between the interpreting and Deaf communities and reinforces CNYRID’s commitment to promote and ensure quality interpreter services.

These two groups also host social events in conjunction with Aurora of CNY: the Annual Christmas Party and an Annual Picnic.

The CNYRID is also a strong supporter of the Deaf and hard of hearing youth in our area and offers an annual scholarship award to a deserving high school graduating senior.

General Membership Meetings are held bimonthly. Current professional topics and issues are discussed at meetings of the Community Interpreters in Private Practice Committee (CIPPs) and the Educational Interpreter Committee.

Females are suffering from a low sex drive and causes o a lot of problems inside the family. That’s why you have to change your sexual life and become healthy. The best way to build strong sexual relationships is to improve your desire. You can try different creams and pills; that enhance your sexual appetite. You may apply clitoral cream or take pills on a daily basis. You can also combine both these methods and also make exercises. Read forums where women discuss sexual related problems, share your experience and ask for advice.

INFORMATION ABOUT THE AC HANDBOOK from Rachel Coppelli, our region’s liaison and Rep on the ACRC committee.

There was one thing discussed that was a definite ACRC issue.  That of the AC Handbook accessibility.

I’m not sure of the exact effective date but it is now downloadable (if that’s a word) one section at a time!! So DO (please) let the Region One presidents know that on your next conference call.  Ray James from the ACRC developed brief descriptions of each section and those are now posted along with the link for the particular section.  You still must go to the

Affiliate Chapter section from the RID home page but it’s not too difficult I don’t think.   New sections are under development as well!!!



The Daniel H. Pokorny Memorial Scholarship was established to help qualified applicants defray some of the expenses involved in taking the RID certification tests.  If you want to become certified, but can not afford all of the testing fees, apply for a scholarship. You can obtain more information and an application form from either the RID’s web site at or through RID’s Fax-on-Demand at 1-800-736-9280, Document # 208.  RID’s Scholarship & Awards Committee welcomes applications for this scholarship.  We hope to hear from you!  If you have questions, contact your Regional Representative or the RID Office (  Application deadline is April 1st of each year.
