Well we had a bit of everything for this full house chapter meeting. Starting with WOW awards given to Mitzi and Jenna for their outstanding contributions at the tech expo manning the booth and connecting with those who visited. Way to go! This continued with an announcement of team focus groups, discussion regarding FCC removing captions from the caption telephony system shared from Liz, LAX advisory note from Ken, HAT technologies presentation from Katie Wright and last but not least, a touching farewell to Lisa.

It was a busy and educational Tech Expo this year. The event took place at the Ken Miller Recreation Center in Torrance. The day was pleasant and perfect to come down and learn the latest development and innovations within the hearing industry.
It was great to see a packed house at yesterday’s meeting, including several new faces! Thanks to all who came and participated. We had so much fun sharing ideas and eating cookies. Best of all, we had some great visions for the future of our chapter. At the bottom of this article, you’ll see a link to our meeting transcript provided by our awesome captionist Jane. This should be helpful for those who were unable to make the meeting or would like a recap. We also have some pictures from the meeting as well. Thank you Alicia for providing some of those!
Exciting news shared by HLAA National regarding the OTC Hearing Air 2017 bill currently progressing through congress. The Senate just passed the bill originally introduced by Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Chuck Grassley (R-IA) in March of this year. The House of Representatives passed the bill back on July 12 so now it’s up to the President to sign off on the bill.
With the Convention, March for Science and holiday chapter parties, we haven’t had an actual Chapter meeting since March! Needless to say, we had to shake the rust off a bit to remember just everything that needed to get done for the meeting!
It’s the farewell day but not before getting a chance to witness the live weekly performance of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. The performance is every Sunday from 9:30am-10am Mountain time for the last 87 going on 88 years!
