Transition Team (Ad Hoc)
The Transition Team was established at the Fall Conference in 2015 and ran until the Fall Conference in 2017. Their mission was to study the association structure and purpose, solicit input from members and make recommendations to the membership. A copy of their final report can be found here
. They conducted focus groups with MRID members that identified as:

●     New Interpreters

●     Lightly Seasoned Interpreters

●     Experienced Interpreters

●     Interpreters of Color

●     Deaf Interpreters

●     Deaf Interpreters in St. Cloud

●     Educational Interpreters

●     Interpreter Mentors

Change Team (Ad Hoc)
The Change Team Ad Hoc Committee was established in 2018 to restructure the MRID Board of Directors. They worked the entire year, researched other state affiliate chapters, posted various vlogs educating the community about this proposal, and eventually the membership voted at the Fall Conference to change the structure starting January of 2019. The structure went from eleven board members - President, Vice President, Ex-Officio, Secretary, Treasurer, Northern Rep, Southern Rep, Metro Rep, Central Rep, Student Rep, and Member-at-Large to seven - President, Operations Director, Finance Director, Membership Director, Programs Director, Community Relations Director, and Communications Director.
