Spring into Action!

Author: Stephanie Czuhajewski, Executive Director

Springtime brings a sense of rejuvenation, growth, opportunity and change. A long-awaited farewell to winter, warmer weather and longer days naturally foster our desire to reorganize, renew and reprioritize. Now is the perfect time to “spring” into action and advance ADA’s mission and your profession!

With your help, we can ensure that ADA members will have the knowledge, skills and resources necessary to achieve an ownership position in professional practices now and in the future--and that ADA members will have continuing access to the information, education and relationships that reflect and support best clinical and business practices.

Advocate and Volunteer
  • AuDvocate for success--Advocacy means giving voice to a particular interest or need. It is the act of actively supporting a cause, idea or policy. Today the profession of audiology needs your voice to be heard. ADA and its leaders are actively advocating for the reintroduction of the Audiology Patient Choice Act. Your voice will help ensure the best outcomes for audiology and the patients that you serve. Please visit www.18x18.org for more information and to become an AuDvocate!
  • Volunteer to serve on an ADA Committee—ADA currently seeks committee members for the following committees: awards, mentoring, advocacy and practice resource. Please contact me at sczuhajewski@audiologist.org if you are interested in serving.
  • Mentors make a difference and stake the future—if you are interested in serving as a short- or long-term ADA mentor for an audiology student or a new practitioner, please visit www.audiologist.org to complete the online mentor registration form.
Best Practices are often Best Learned through Peer-to-Peer Interactions
  • Please continue to share knowledge and best practices with your peers through the ADA Connect Listserv! It is the place to go for practical, peer-centered advice and the single fastest and most impromptu way to learn from (or share with) your peers. Please visit www.audiologist.org to sign up and get connected.
  • ADA is currently seeking authors for future issues of Audiology Practices. Regular content areas include business practices, diagnosis and treatment, professional issues and a resource center. ADA is also accepting abstracts for online web seminars on an ongoing basis. Please contact info@audiologist.org today for more information on writing an article or teaching a course.
ADA is the premier network and resource for both successful practice ownership and ownership of the profession. ADA members are recognized as audiology’s innovators, dreamers, doers, envelope pushers and catalysts. You are the conduit that carries the profession forward—spring into action today!
