Our employees are among the organization's most valuable assets and resources. We share compassion for leveling the playing field for all. Our mission makes AIDB a unique place to work.

Regional Directors (RDs) make effective leadership decisions and solve problems using sound judgment in supervising the development and coordination of specialized programs for individuals who are deaf, blind, and deafblind. RDs also provide strong leadership to the staff (clerical, professional, contract, and volunteers) to include direct supervision, program evaluation, staff development, conducting performance evaluations, and recruitment of new staff. RDs have operations and fiduciary responsibilities for their respective center (travel, payroll, requisitions, etc.). RDs will represent AIDB and their Regional Center at state and local consumer group activities as well as various state and national committees. Finally, RDs act as primary liaison between staff and the Executive Director of Field Services.
