We have some exciting news!!! You can stay home, be safe, and earn CEs with the 2020 Virtual MSHA Convention this summer!
We have the recordings completed, the hours determined, the platforms secured and continuing education (CE) approval submitted. The behind-the-scenes work creating a quality, online learning opportunity such as this and then finalizing the last-minute details has been astronomical....but worth it!!!
The Convention recordings are packed full of quality speakers and more CE hours than you could have achieved at the onsite Convention. Over 40 hours of recordings will be available from June 15 through September 1, 2020.
This is the first time in the history of MSHA that we have ever undertaken such a monumental task. A special shout out of thanks to the executive board, convention planning team, MSHA central office staff, convention speakers, the American Speech Language Hearing Association, and the American Academy of Audiology. You all rock!!!
Legislators may be voting on bills that will repeal the Missouri all-rider motorcycle helmet law by the end of this session on Friday, May 15th! Do your part!
The Brain Injury Association of Missouri and the Missouri Speech-Language Hearing Association are wanting speech and hearing professionals to reach out to their state senators and representatives as soon as possible. A repeal of the Missouri All-Rider Motorcycle Helmet Law would result in a 38% increase in motorcycle fatalities, 330 more motorcyclists in Missouri sustaining a moderate to severe brain injury, and a $3 million increase in taxpayer costs for injured motorcyclists. There is a 69% reduction in brain injuries when a motorcyclist wears a helmet.
When contacting your elected officials, request that the repeal of the Missouri all-rider motorcycle helmet law does not pass - VOTE NO on HCS for SB 686 and VOTE NO on SB 590.
When sending an email to your elected official, please include the Brain Injury Association of Missouri (Advocacy@biamo.org) as a CC or BCC.
