2020 Fall
Society Meeting

Canceled

The Society In-Person Meeting on September 30 is cancelled. The Society has enjoyed a long partnership with ASHA. We have held our yearly in-person membership meeting in conjunction with ASHA. This year, due to COVID 19, ASHA has cancelled its in-person event. Therefore the Society will cancel our planned member event on September 30. The Board and PD Committee have hosted several virtual events and we would like to plan a virtual event in place of our in-person event. There will be more details to come. The Society and ASHA are working on a joint virtual event for our Board and members. We are exploring way to deepen the partnership. There will be more details on that event soon too.
