For multiple reasons, it may be considered necessary to drop a current participant from a Ring Central Meeting without closing the meeting to all. Please add a feature to drop a participant and possibly block that participant from joining the call.

Hi Terrill,

I hope you're having a great day! There is a simple method for removing a participant from a meeting.  You can check this help file - https://support.ringcentral.com/s/article/9360?language=en_US.

As for not allowing them back into the meeting, I suggest you use the lock meeting function while hosting the meeting after you know that you have all participants in the meeting. 

Kind regards,
Dennis Kyle

Dennis,
Thank you for your quick response.  Albeit, the response came as a surprise since the RingCentral helpdesk informed me removing a participant from a meeting was not possible and in a followup email advised me to put in this feature request.

Hi Terrill,

I am glad you were able to find the answer helpful. We are Partners of RingCentral and I think that periodically the requirement a user has is not understood well by the RC support team. Good news is, there is a big community of us out here ready to help each other. Have a great rest of your day.

Hey, friends! It looks like the link that Dennis shared is specifically for webinars.
However, you are able to remove participants by clicking on the drop-down menu in the participant's window and selecting remove. 
Hope this helps!
