Hearing Loss Association of America–Washington
Board of Trustees 2020

Our Board and committees enable people with hearing loss to share experiences and knowledge with other people with hearing loss, combining enjoyable social interaction with productive learning experiences.

Trustees are HLAA members who serve for three-year terms and commit to attending Board meetings and assigned committee meetings–all of which are currently virtual (online only) during the pandemic. Trustees lead HLAA-Washington’s legal advocacy efforts, plan the organization’s programs, recruit and train new board members, provide fiscal oversight, and direct and help provide support and information to help Washingtonians with hearing loss live their best lives.
