New Webinar for Chapter Leaders 17 February 2017

Attracting and Keeping Younger Adults

February 17, 2017, 2 p.m. – 3 p.m. ET

Presenter: Valerie Stafford-Mallis, HLAA director of chapter development


A recurring question HLAA chapter and state organization leaders ask is, “How can we get young people to come to our meetings? If we are able to get them in the door, they seem to come once or twice and then they don’t come back.”

It’s reasonable to assume that young people decide to come to HLAA meetings because they are looking for something of value. Believe it or not, even in the age of readily available information on hearing loss on the internet, not everything active young adults need in order to live well with their hearing loss can be found online.

In this webinar, Valerie will share insights learned from young adults with hearing loss about what they need. The webinar will offer suggestions about where to find active young adults with hearing loss, how to help them, and program ideas to get them to keep coming back. While we can’t guarantee that EVERY suggestion will work for EVERY chapter EVERY time, the odds are very good that at least some of them will help increase young adult participation in chapter activities. Please make plans to join us for a 40-45 minute presentation with 15-20 minutes of time allocated to discussion. The webinar will be captioned and it will be archived on the HLAA webinar portal for those unable to participate in real-time.
