Hope you’re staying cool in these sweaty dog days of summer.
Believe it or not, summer is flying by and it’s time to start thinking about this year’s Steering Committee elections. They will take place at our September chapter meeting. We are so excited about this election. We encourage anyone interested in getting more involved with our chapter to think of nominating yourself! Or if you prefer, let somebody else nominate you instead. You must be a paid HLAA National member in order to vote in the election, as well as to serve on the SC.
Here are the transcripts from Saturday’s meeting. Many thanks to the quick turnaround from Jane, our captioner.
Below is the link to our newsletter.
Many of us were lucky to attend the annual HLAA National Convention in St. Louis last month. At this Saturday’s meeting, we will share our experiences from what was a very invigorating, informative, and fun weekend. We’ll end the meeting with a rap session on how we can keep a positive attitude despite the challenges that come with living with hearing loss.
As always, the meeting will be captioned and looped, and refreshments and coffee will be provided.
Looking forward to seeing many of you on Saturday!
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.
Attached is the latest newsletter below:
Although many of us will be in St. Louis for the HLAA National Convention, there will still be a June meeting on the 27th, led by Danny Tubbs! His presentation will be on Hearing Loss Trivia, and is sure to be lots of fun and very informative. Most of the Steering Committee will be absent from this meeting, so any extra help with set-up and clean-up will be very much appreciated.
Have a great meeting, and for those of you going to the Convention, “meet me in St. Louis!”
