Attention Associate Members
Termination of Quality Assurance Levels (QA) and/or Educational Interpreting Levels (EIE)
QA/EIE Reinstatement Following Termination for Non-Payment of Dues In accordance with FRID bylaws, each fiscal year ends on June 30th. Membership dues must be paid prior to July 1st in order to avoid a lapse in membership. There is a two-month (60 day) grace period during July and August. If membership dues are not paid by September 1st, QA/EIE Levels are terminated for non-payment of dues. After September 1st, applications for reinstatement of QA/EIE Levels may be submitted to the Board of Directors, along with membership dues, a $25.00 late fee, and a $100.00 reinstatement fee. The cutoff date for reinstatement is February 1st.
Dual Membership Requirement for QA and/or EIEAny member who has a QA and/or EIE Level must be a Pre-Certified Associate Member of FRID, as well as a member of RID. Dual membership to both organizations is required, according to the FRID bylaws. If you are not a member of RID, you do not meet the requirements for Associate Membership and your QA and/or EIE Levels are invalid. Annually, all Pre-Certified Associate members are required to provide RID documentation to firstname.lastname@example.org to maintain their QA/EIE level(s).
