TBC News September 1991"Membership organizations, such as the American Medical Association or the American Bar Association, do not certify the competencies of the membership that supports it financially, because this would pose serious conflict of interest issues.

We have not examined the ethical implications of certifying our own membership within RID. It benefits RID financially to certify as many members as possible- since certified members pay the highest dues- yet it may not be in the best interest of consumers and the profession as a whole."

From An Open Letter from Tom Willard: It is not enough for us to say that institutions such as Gallaudet and NTID should hire more deaf people. It is necessary for those of us who are qualified to work at these institutions to APPLY for the jobs. Then, if we apply for a position and get turned down in favor of a hearing person, it is vital that we find out the qualifications of that person and compare those qualifications with our own ability to do the job. If we see a hearing person take the job and we feel that we are better qualified, then it becomes necessary to take whatever action we feel will bring us the results that we desire.
