The Nebraska Speech-Language-Hearing Association (NSLHA) is hosting Road Shows in October in 6 locations around the state. These are free events with a light meal provided. Association leaders are seeking your ideas and feedback about possible universal licensure for speech-language pathologists, hearing aid coverage for children, the Nebraska Medicaid program, how the association can best serve you, and other issues that you want to discuss.
If you’re unable to attend a Road Show in your area in person, you can participate online through Zoom. Please mark that option on the registration brochure. NSLHA is also hosting a webinar with the same discussions on October 30th at 3:30 p.m. Central.
Plan to attend to help ensure that your voice is heard. Thank you in advance for your participation.

Connect with audiologists, speech-language pathologists and students; implement new ideas and practices learned during education sessions in tracks for audiologists, speech-language pathologists and students; recognize the accomplishments of your peers; and receive an update on how your state association is advocating for and serving you.
NSLHA's vision is to be the leading voice and partner in promoting speech, language, hearing, balance, swallowing and related disorders in Nebraska, and to be an expert in advocating for the rights and interests of persons with communication disorders. Join or renew your membership today.
A major role that state associations play is as an advocacy organization. Associations monitor proposed legislation, identify bills that may have a positive or negative impact on the field of communication sciences and disorders and the individuals we serve, and develop advocacy agendas to address those bills. A large unified voice such as a state association can be key to successful advocacy.
