You’re invited to participate in the 2019 Nebraska Speech-Language-Hearing Association Fall Convention at the Scott Conference Center in Omaha, Nebraska. The convention brings together audiologists, speech-language pathologists and students from around the state who are seeking employment opportunities and are looking for the best products and services available for their schools, hospitals, universities and private practices.

NSLHA's Schools-Based Issues Committee is working on behalf of members by developing SLI verification guidelines, telepractice guidelines, will be addressing workload/caseload issues, and met on December 12th with the Nebraska Department of Education to discuss continuing education requirements for SLPs wanting to work in Nebraska as well as universal licensure.

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.
