Happy Holidays to our Wonderful Chapters and State Organizations!

Happy Holidays to all of our Chapters and State Organizations! In the past year, I have had the pleasure of working so closely with you, learning from each and every one of you, and assisting you in the amazing work that you do for the 48 million individuals nationwide with hearing loss. Thank you for making this a year to remember!

We at HLAA are so grateful for all of our volunteers and hope that you close the year out on a high note. The HLAA office will be closed from Monday, December 25- Tuesday, January 2. If you need anything during this time, please feel free to email me and I will get back to you as soon as I am back in the office, if not sooner.

If you missed our Zoom webinar on Wednesday, December 21 which included some very exciting announcements for the organization in 2018, you can find a replay here. Please share this information with fellow leaders and members, and do not hesitate to be in touch with thoughts, feedback, etc.

Thank you all for a wonderful year, and we will see you in 2018!

We have some exciting news we would like to share with you! Please join us for a webinar on Wednesday, December 20 at 1:00 PM Eastern Time on Zoom (our new webinar platform!).

HLAA2018 Postcards Available Soon
Convention postcards with special information and highlights about the HLAA2018 Convention in Minneapolis, Minnesota will be available in January. If your chapter is interested in spreading the word about HLAA2018 and would like postcards to do so, please email and note in the subject line: “Convention Postcards”. In the email, include the quantity of postcards that you would like to receive and we will work with you.

Thank you for all that you do! Feel free to reach me directly at or with any questions or concerns. 

All the best,
