“Hello! I am Julie Rems Smario, the current President of the California Association- C.A.D.  We will have a town hall meeting hosted by CAD, DCARA and NorCRID.  We will share the facts of what is happening with RID.  Additionally, we want to listen to your concerns, your perspectives and your ideas.  We will collect them and share them with RID and NAD.   Please join us!  Thumbs up.”

[Fade to white man sitting in an office with window and office furniture in background.   White man is bald, light skin, blue eyes.  He is wearing a short sleeved button down shirt.]

“Hi all, my name is Robin from DCARA in the Bay Area.  You may have learned about the RID moratorium on the performance test.  You may be wondering about the impact it may have?  In the short term, will it impact the pool of hearing interpreters?  What about Certified Deaf Interpreters?   The pool of CDIs is already very small.   How will this pool of CDIs grow?   What are our options?  How will we push for what we want?   You may be asking - what happened?!   Join us!”
