Are you interested in being a board member or working with HLAA-WA?

The Nominations Committee of the Washington State Association of HLAA seeks and assesses potential nominees to our Board of Trustees. Trustees are HLAA members who serve for three-year terms and commit to attending Board meetings, assigned committee meetings and selected outreach and advocacy events, requiring some local travel and the regular use of a computer and email.

Please consider applying for membership on our HLAA-WA Board. We also regularly seek volunteers to assist with outreach and advocacy activities, and we have leadership committees related to our various communications tools, fundraising activities and social events. 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.
