               Dear HLAA Rochester Members,

Do you know that the annual National HLAA convention, happening from June 18 to June 20, 2020, will be in one of the most interesting and fun cities in the USA?

New Orleans, Louisiana is steeped in culture, history, music, and interest, and promises to be an eventful time for visitors for the HLAA Convention.  The Friday Research Symposium will feature cutting-edge research regarding Tinnitus. 

The Keynote Speaker, author David Owen, wrote Volume Control:  Hearing in a Deafening World.  Exhibit hall, parties, awards and Walk4Hearing will be some of the fun and interesting events available to attendees!

Registration is up and busy, and discounted "Early Bird" rates are available until Monday, March 2.  Full convention and daily packages are available.  Registration can be on-line or via snail mail. 

Don’t forget that generous stipends are available from your local chapter for active members!  

You can learn more about the convention and associated information on the web at:  https://www.hearingloss.org/programs-events/convention/registration/

I look forward to seeing many of you in “N’arlins” in June!

Suzanne Johnston
President, HLAA Rochester

Volunteering/Helping

Our chapter has a number of Committees in which you may be interested. Members are welcome to sit in on a meeting to see if it suits your interests. None of the committees require a huge committement. Contact us to find out more about the committees we have...you may find a match. Interacting with other people with hearing loss where communication is taken into consideration can be a big stress reliever. Contact us at [email protected],  Phone: 585-266-7890. 
I'll volunteer
Count me in!!
Me too!
You can complete our Volunteer/Chapter Helper form here and we'll happily contact you. We are all volunteers at HLAA. We all share your concerns about time availability, committment, and enjoying what you're doing. There's something for everyone so no need to feel uncomfortable; you won't be pressured and there's nothing to be lost by obtaining information!
Is scrapbooking your interest or passion?

Would you like a project to do at your own pace?
Our Rochester HLAA Chapter is thirsting for a volunteer who would be interested in working on or Chapter history by placing items both current and past into one or more scrapbooks. You’d have free reign as to your approach and commit whatever time you would be able to give to this project. We have a lot of material and there are always new items, but you can work at your pace knowing you are preserving the history of SHHH/HLAA

 Please contact Suzanne Johnston Chapter President to volunteer.  [email protected]  phone 585-266-7890
Would you like to volunteer at our Assistive Listening Demonstration Center?
