It is with a heavy heart that I must announce the dissolution of RIAGE. On November 14th, 2011 the Executive Board voted to dissolve the organization. The website will remain registered to serve as a resource for those seeking information regarding gifted and talented. Members who have paid membership in 2011 will be refunded. If you have not received a refund please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will process a reimbursement for you. All inquiries regarding specific gifted and talented services available in RI should be forwarded to Commissioner Gist at the Department of Education.
I, personally, am unable to continue leading RIAGE. It has been an honor and pleasure meeting people throughout the state, trying to be a support for parents, teachers and children. I hope RIAGE has been of value to all who have sought support and understanding regarding gifted and talented. Gifted children need advocates. Don’t give up the fight!
