Georgia Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf



An important event took place at the 2015 GAD Conference in June on Jekyll Island: GAD President, Dr. Frank Lala, and GaRID President, Erin Salmon, signed the historic MOU – Memorandum of Understanding – between GAD and GaRID. 






GaRID is proud to present the following document, 

written by Tom Lawrie, describing the origins

of the organization that is today GaRID. 



Thank you, Tom, for your dedication to the preservation of this story. 

The document was edited by Pam Hill, Becky Sills & Donna Davis.


Below are the minutes from GaRID's first meeting, February 19, 1971.
