Past Members, Presidents And Executive Directors

Since its beginning in 1968, a large number of people have contributed their time and talents to TDI in hopes of improving the lives of deaf and hard of hearing people. Their efforts have taken many forms, including doing such things as distributing refurbished teletype machines, writing articles for TDI publications, giving presentations at TDI conferences, doing volunteer work at the TDI office, and providing pro bono legal services to TDI.

To everyone who has ever assisted TDI in any way we extend our most sincere “Thank you.” Beyond that, however, over the years TDI has been extremely fortunate to have received the selfless organizational guidance of a special group of people, namely the Executive Directors, Presidents, and members of the TDI Board of Directors. It is with the deepest appreciation that their outstanding dedication, vision, and leadership is acknowledged here.
