MSHA Town Hall: Empowerment Series

I had the opportunity to attend all three Town Hall Meetings and each one of them was outstanding.
Kudos to the Executive Board and committee members who organized these meetings, as well as to
each presenter. Thank you for providing the MSHA membership with a positive alternative, due to the
loss of the onsite spring Convention, to earn CEUs!

Timeline PhotosThe American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) categorically condemns yesterday’s violent, destructive, and deadly attack on the U.S. Capitol—and our democracy. It was an affront to the values our country holds dear, including the First Amendment freedom of expression and assembly. We recognize how upsetting these events are to ASHA members, ASHA staff, and the public at large, and cannot in good conscience remain silent. We all have a stake in Congress’s ability to operate in a setting of mutual respect, civility, and safety. ASHA works closely with lawmakers to advance a public policy agenda that is critical not only to the professional futures of ASHA members, but also to the well-being of millions of Americans with communication disorders. Communication is intended as a tool for sharing, unifying, and increasing understanding, and we all stand to gain through civil discourse; however, what we saw yesterday and what’s continuing today is divisive rhetoric that divides and can result in violence and sedition. Communication is something we all hold dear, and should never be used to incite, harm, or divide. ... See MoreSee Less

We have another GOLD Status Awardee!! Congratulations to MIZZOU's NSSLHA!!! You gals ROCK👊 🤩 ! See the message below from their Chapter Social Chair...

My name is Maggie O’Brien and I am the social chair for Mizzou’s NSSLHA chapter. NSSLHA has provided me with many service opportunities, knowledge about the field, and friendships throughout the years. This semester I volunteered to take temperatures and ask COVID-19 questions in the clinic. This was a great way to help out and make sure everyone stays safe.

Throughout the years we have had many guest speakers come in to talk to us and I always enjoyed the information they shared. During one of our meetings this semester we heard from a panel of graduate school students. Members had the opportunity to ask them questions about their experience. This was very helpful for me because I am currently in the process of applying to graduate school. They gave great advice and helped me out a lot!

One thing I love about NSSHLA is the opportunity to grow closer relationships with the people in your grade and meet other members in different grades. During class, there is not always time to socialize with peers and NSSHLA gave me an opportunity to make friendships at meetings. I am sure at least one of the people I met at NSSHLA will go to the same graduate school as me or be a colleague of mine sometime in the future. I am very grateful for my involvement with NSSLHA. Pictured above is our NSSLHA Executive Board and Advisor – Dana Fritz.
