A New Way Forward

North Carolina Audiology Association

WELCOME, NORTH CAROLINA AUDIOLOGIST

We are fortunate to practice in North Carolina, a state with a community of Audiologists whose level of expertise and range of practice is unmatched in the nation.  In 2017, we developed an independent state academy with the inclusiveness, flexibility and focus to support that community. The North Carolina Audiology Association, Inc (NCAA) hasn't stopped working for the enrichment of our members, patients and constituents since day one. Our dynamic and active association is leading NC Audiology into the future. Join us!

2020 LEGISLATIVE ACHIEVEMENTS

NCAA members, your legislative efforts have made an incredible impact for North Carolinian Audiologists for decades to come! Due to the direct efforts of NCAA lobbyist, Tony Solari, Governor Cooper has signed House 1053 - "PED/OL & Audiology Interstate Compact." This exciting compact includes NC in a growing number of states who will recognize the license and practice privileges of an Audiologist in neighboring states.

Need further evidence of the reach and impact of your membership?

In April, NCAA was critical in the passing of Executive Order 116, which enacted temporary rules relating to audiology assistants. The order carefully outlined the authorized tasks of an audiology assistant, including the supervised provision of telehealth services. NCAA will continue to work with lawmakers to make this temporary order a permanent one.

Conference

A state conference is the lifeblood of a professional association. Meeting once a year to grow together and build a cohesive body of Audiologists will make us effective in our state and beyond.

Congratulations to our 2020 conference planning committee on a successful Virtual Conference! NCAA members enjoyed hearing about ethics from Keynote Speaker Deb Abel, AuD and learning about our critical advocacy agenda from Lobbyist Anthony Solari. Student members rounded out the morning with excellent and innovative research updates. We are so proud of what NCAA has accomplished and will continue to do for North Carolinian Audiologists!

A state conference is a critical way to:

  • Provide high quality CEU sessions.
  • Engage Audiologists in face-to-face professional networking
  • Plan and lead our organization and profession into the future
  • Update on the latest technology available from manufacturers
  • Engage students from all over the state in education, mentoring, and poster session
  • Share resources with each other that will advance our respective practices
  • Have a BLAST at the fun activities that we have planned!
