HLAA-LA January 2016 Newsletter
Please note, I will no longer be listing birthdays and anniversaries on the newsletter. Unfortunately, the roster I was using for this information is very outdated and does not include many new members.
We hope that many of you will come to our chapter meeting next Saturday, January 23. We will be discussing the PCAST (President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology) report and how it could potentially affect us as consumers, and the hearing healthcare industry as a whole.
You can read more about the PCAST at the following links:
Our president Pat Widman will be out of town for a much-deserved vacation, so Steering Committee member and Treasurer Ken Cluskey will be leading the discussion. As always, there will be refreshments and coffee and the meeting will be captioned and looped.
See many of you on Saturday!
Attached are the transcripts from Saturday’s meeting shown below.
Happy Thanksgiving to all!
November 2015 Meeting Transcripts
Hope everyone is enjoying what seems like our first FALL weekend. I don’t know about you but I am more than done with temps in the 90s.
I want to thank everybody who signed up at the last meeting for one of the committees. We can still use help, particularly when it comes to set-up and clean-up at meetings. If you’re able to lend a hand, let me know or sign the clipboards that will be at the meeting on 11/21. Remember, many hands mean a lighter load!

Hello everyone – Transcript of our October 24 meeting is available at the link below.
It was a great meeting… and I think we all truly enjoyed the presentation/demo from Barb Velasquez of The Sam Simon Foundation and “Dude” – an adorable Shih Tzu who’s training to be a hearing dog. We also had a great discussion about some of our chapter goals, led by new Prez Patricia Widman!
October 2015 Meeting Transcript
Our next fab meeting is next Saturday, Oct. 24th. Our very special guests will be a speaker from the Sam Simon Foundation and a guest dog (or dogs?). All dogs are great, but service dogs are the best! Could you use a hearing one to help your lifestyle? A family member and helper for life? Find out for yourself and come with your questions. It should be fascinating (and adorable)!

September 2015 Meeting Transcripts
Please consider running for the Steering Committee. It is not hard or tons of work to participate. You would not be overwhelmed. The rest of us are always here to help if you have questions or concerns! We’d love to be able to work with new people and get a new perspective on SC issues.

We had a great meeting on Saturday, a full house with a very knowledgeable speaker from the House Institute. I think a few of us are going to be making appointments to see Suzannah in the near future!

July 2015 Meeting Transcripts
Below, you will find the transcript from Saturday’s meeting. It was from a captioner we haven’t had before and I’ve never worked with a text file before, so I’m hoping one of these formats will be usable for you. Let me know if you have any problems opening it or reading it.
