Mission Statement

The Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (RID) plays a leading role in establishing a national standard of quality for interpreters and transliterators. As an affiliate chapter of RID, we at AKRID also: encourage growth of the profession, strive to educate the public about the vital role of interpreters and transliterators, and work to ensure equal opportunity and access for all individuals.

As members of RID, we commit to providing ethical, high-quality interpreting services for our clients; we also commit to our own continuous professional development. One focus of AKRID is to improve upon the interpreting community here in Alaska where we support indigenous and Native Alaskan culture and cultural sensitivity.
