On May 23, 2018, a group of audiologists and students travelled to the State Capitol Building in Raleigh to advocate for the profession and raise awareness about audiology issues. We had an amazing day meeting and talking with legislators, learning about how bills are passed, and how to take an active and leading role in the profession.
Thank you to all the audiologists who donated their time and effort, and their gas money, (some drove all the way from Charlotte) to this awesome event.
The State Capitol Building is located a few blocks north of the very center of Raleigh, North Carolina. Legislators gather here for part of the year to conduct the business of the policy and lawmaking for all of North Carolina. Every single part of North Carolina is represented, from Murphy to Manteo. Everyone reading this article will have two legislators representing him or her in state affairs.
