AuDacity 2018



AuDacity 2018 is bolder than ever! Join us for three days packed with more than 18 hours of available CE courses distinctly designed to deliver relevant information and resources to audiologists in autonomous practice. Network boldly—AuDacity offers plenty of opportunities to eat, drink, and be amazed by the more than 50 exhibiting companies dedicated to helping practices and their patients succeed.

On Monday, Dr. Victor Bray will lead a day-long symposium on Co-management of Cormorbid Diseases. Interest sessions on practice accreditation and IP captioned telephone services will follow. Monday evening, enjoy food and fun with friends at the opening reception in the AuDacity Marketplace! Participate in the Tuning Fork Challenge and bid on one of the many customized, artisanal tuning forks – all proceeds benefit the Audiology Patient Choice Act.

On Tuesday morning, Lt. Gen. Mark P. Hertling will discuss “Growing Healthcare Leaders – Empowerment to Improve Healthcare” During this keynote presentation, attendees will be introduced to the attributes and competencies required of all leaders, and how this model contributes to building teams and organizational effectiveness in healthcare. Our Tuesday afternoon keynote, Dan Price, CEO of Gravity Payments, will talk about such topics as intrinsic motivation, employee disengagement, and why he decided to institute a $70k minimum wage.

Featured general sessions on Tuesday include “Insights from the Outside: Creating an Exceptional Patient Journey” and an interactive session on “Building the Audiology Brand”. The day will end with a reception in the AuDacity Marketplace.

On Wednesday, start your day by attending the Annual ADA Member Breakfast. You will be updated on the APCA advocacy progress and the other endeavors of the organization including practice accreditation and the Master Mind groups. After breakfast, choose your own path from a multitude of thought-provoking concurrent sessions. Lunch will feature the ADA Student Business Plan Competition, where the next generation of private practitioners will face off to win the judges’ votes! The grand prize winner/team will walk off with a $5,000 cash grant. This is a great time to hear some great ideas and earn some additional continuing education credit!
