Our March 25th Chapter Meeting – Steering Committee Elections, PLUS Law Enforcement and Hearing Loss!


We have a real treat for our March chapter meeting: special guest speaker Sgt. Dan Widman, 23-year veteran of the LAPD, currently the Field Operations Supervisor, North Hollywood Division, AND the son of our very own President Pat Widman!  Sgt. Widman will speak to us about a very important topic: how to interact with Law Enforcement when you have a hearing loss.

And, it is finally time for our annual Steering Committee (SC) elections! If you would like to get more involved with our chapter and its future, please consider running. Please note that you must be an HLAA National member in order to join the SC. Voting will take place at the meeting and results will be announced by end of meeting. Only HLAA National members can vote. (All current and newly elected SC members will be expected to stay after the chapter meeting for an SC meeting.)
