State/Chapter Leader / Delegate Registration Information

Dear State and Chapter Leaders,
HLAA is excited to host the HLAA2017 Convention in beautiful Salt Lake City, Utah. You will want to add at least a day or two to your trip – there is so much to see and do! To start planning, go to http://www.visitsaltlake.com/.
Be sure to see the upcoming November/December issue of Hearing Loss Magazine for details about the Convention, but in the meantime, I want to get some preliminary registration information out to you.
State associations/offices and chapters may register up to 4 officers (i.e., president, vice-president, secretary, treasurer) PLUS 1 Delegate (encourage a member who is being groomed for a leadership role to use the Delegate registration).  Officers must be current members of HLAA.   The officer registrations are not transferrable to other HLAA members. 

State Chapter Coordinators are also eligible for the State/Chapter Leader/Delegate Registration .
               State /Chapter Leader/Delegate Registration
  Deadline: March 31, 2017 (not January 31st, as in previous years)
               Rate: $125 + Cranky Cochlea Dinner Theater ($65)
                After March 31, 2017 this pricing is no longer available; use the regular registration form found in Hearing Loss Magazine or the Convention page on hearingloss.org.
State and chapter leaders and delegates must register using a registration form – online registration is NOT available due to the type of information collected on the form and due to the fact that we must have a current State/Chapter Update form on file (an annual requirement).  
If you have not submitted the Chapter/State Update Form this year, please download the form from
http://hearingloss.org/sites/default/files/docs/Chapter_State_Update_Form_fillable_v2.pdf  The Chapter/State Update Form is also available on the Convention page.  Your registration will not be processed if we do not have a current form on file. Updating your chapter information is important so our records and website reflect the correct data.

We are excited about the plans being made for the HLAA2017 Convention and we hope to see you Salt Lake City! Be sure to check for updates on the Convention page, in the biweekly HLAA e-News (if you are not receiving the HLAA e-News, sign up at http://hearingloss.org/content/e-news-sign), our Facebook page, and on Twitter @HLAA #HLAA2017.

On Another Note -

As you might know, I have moved into a new role at HLAA – I am now the director of external affairs and events, focusing more on corporate sponsorships and other projects. Our new meeting planner, Niaz Siasi, is now officially on board and anxious to meet you all in Salt Lake City. Niaz is a recent graduate of the University of Maryland with a degree in Communications. Her email address is
nsiasi@hearingloss.org. Please give her a warm HLAA welcome.

Thank you for all you do for HLAA and I look forward to seeing you in Salt Lake City.

Best Regards,

Nancy Macklin
Director of External Affairs and Events
