HLAA2017 Convention State/Chapter Development Track Call for Papers Now Open

Do you have an innovative idea for making chapters and state organizations stronger? Would you like an opportunity to share your knowledge with the rest of HLAA? If so, here is your opportunity!
The Call for Papers is now open for HLAA2017 Convention workshop proposals. You don’t want to miss this chance to share what works in your chapter and have a great time doing so in the process! On the Call for Papers page you can also find information on presenting in the State/Chapter Development Room. The deadline for submissions is December 2, so don’t delay, apply today!


Every October 1 HLAA chapters submit their Chapter Update Forms.  You can click here to download the form.  

HLAA’s Membership Services and Web Technologies Departments use the information on these forms to update your chapter’s database record and its listing in the Find A Chapter page of the HLAA website.  With 160 + Chapters and State Associations, working from these forms is the best way for us to handle the data.  We apologize for having to ask you to fill out the form. Please believe me when I say this, we really appreciate your patience and understanding. 

Many of you have already submitted your forms and your diligence is so appreciated.  If you are not sure, I am happy to check for you. Just email me at

I hope you are having a wonderful fall. You open the world of communication to people with hearing loss and you make a difference in their world.  Every day! 
All the best,
Valerie Stafford-Mallis
