The Oregon Branch, also known as ORBIDA, became a chartered branch of IDA in 1976. We are one of 47 branches of IDA (45 in the US, 2 in Canada).
We promote literacy through research, education, and advocacy.
We provide information and referral services to both members and non-members, conduct various teacher training and other programs each year, including an annual conference, and activities in support of National Dyslexia Awareness Month in October.
Our website contains information about our branch, its history, members of the board of directors, and much more including links to both the international headquarters and our other branches.
We are all volunteers and always need interested and qualified individuals for our board of directors and committees. We are especially in need of a qualified bookkeeper or accountant who would be willing to serve a 2-year term on our board effective immediately.
