Dear WSAA Members and Friends,
If you were among the attendees at our Fall Conference you may have been a part of the discussion regarding the passage of HB 2108. This bill, you may recall, created an alternate pathway for hearing aid dispenser licensure in the state of Washington. However, some of the final details of the bill still need to be worked out by the Board of Hearing & Speech (BoHS) and will continue to be discussed at upcoming BoHS meetings.
We welcome and encourage al Washington audiologists to be a part of this process as we collaborate with our partners in the hearing community to ensure the best outcome for Washington's hearing impaired consumers:
Monday, September 29th: 9:00-Noon and Monday, October 6th: 9:00-Noon

Monday, October 13: 9:00-Noon
