Potomac Chapter

of the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf

Meet the Board of Directors

PCRID's Board of Directors are elected members of the organization charged with carrying out PCRID's administrative functions. In addition to each Board member's specific duties, the Board holds General Membership Meetings and meets quarterly to discuss the organization's business.

These leadership positions are rewarding and give members the opportunity to build camaraderie among professionals in our field.  Elections take place at the PCRID Annual Conference during the Business Meeting and each board position has a two-year term. Incumbents may run again and eavery member's vote counts. Consider running for a Board position and make a difference in your profession and communities. 

President, Gina d'amore 2017 & 2018. President@pcrid.org
Gina brings a wealth of perspectives on the field, not only as an interpreter, but also as a business owner and a consumer. She has also served on other boards, including the International Alumnae of Delta Epsilon Sorority and was an OGG delegate at the 2016 NAD conference.  Currently, she is also president of the Eastern Deaf Women's Bowling Association! This track record of organizational  leadership experience will certainly make her an asset to PCRID.
