Special veterans membership

Hearing injury is the most common medical issue for veterans. In recognition of this, and in gratitude for your service to our country, HLAA has created a special membership for veterans. Your first year of membership is complimentary. Also, you and a caregiver can attend your first HLAA convention at no charge. HLAA has also created a virtual chapter for veterans with hearing loss.

The Veterans Across America Virtual Chapter conducts free, captioned monthly Zoom meetings. The VAAVC meets online every 3rd Tuesday of the month. Caregivers of veterans are welcome too! Connecting with peers is a vital step in learning to accept and manage your hearing loss. Meeting with fellow veteran’s can be particularly helpful.
