There are always opportunities to help with short-term projects or serve on committees or task groups. NSLHA is always looking for members representing diverse experiences, perspectives and interests to share their expertise, experiences and ideas. It’s a great opportunity to enhance your leadership skills and learn more about our profession and industry.
Some of the ways that you can volunteer include:

Discuss direct and indirect effects of Diabetes Mellitus (DM) on auditory function and the importance of early identification in prevention and treatment of hearing loss.
Connect with audiologists, speech-language pathologists and students; implement new ideas and practices learned during education sessions in tracks for audiologists, speech-language pathologists and students; recognize the accomplishments of your peers; and receive an update on how your state association is advocating for and serving you.
NSLHA's vision is to be the leading voice and partner in promoting speech, language, hearing, balance, swallowing and related disorders in Nebraska, and to be an expert in advocating for the rights and interests of persons with communication disorders. Join or renew your membership today.
A major role that state associations play is as an advocacy organization. Associations monitor proposed legislation, identify bills that may have a positive or negative impact on the field of communication sciences and disorders and the individuals we serve, and develop advocacy agendas to address those bills. A large unified voice such as a state association can be key to successful advocacy.
