From Nancy Macklin: Convention Delegate Instructions

December 7, 2010

Dear Chapter and State Leaders ~

It has come to my attention that there is some confusion regarding registration for the Convention and the 2nd International Hearing Loop Conference. We’ve tried to make registration easier for leaders and delegates by eliminating the discount codes used in the past, but there are several things I’d like to point out:

Delegates should be selected by the end of December so that those not selected have the opportunity to register as an Early Bird. (The delegate has until May 1st to actually complete the online registration; leaders and delegates must register online). Delegates should be aware that their attendance at workshops held in the Chapter Development room is expected. Please email the name of your delegate before they register to Elizabeth LeBarron, National States and Chapters Coordinator, at elebarron@hearingloss.org.

· The Loop Conference is a great deal, but space is limited; those registered for the Conference are counted when we order materials, plan meals, etc., so attendance is expected. The Conference will be highly technical – it’s not for everyone.

· The Loop Conference registration includes a ticket to the banquet on Saturday evening (A Capital Celebration). We are able to do this because the Conference has been underwritten by a grant. If you are attending the Conference as well as the Convention, do NOT add a banquet ticket.

The Convention page on hearingloss.org contains information about both events – please read through the information carefully so that you register for exactly what you want to attend. Registering correctly the first time makes life easier for everyone.

· PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE feel free to call or email me with any comments, questions or concerns. I’m happy to help in any way I can.

Happy Holidays ~
