In association with the NCAA conference, we will have a night of fun following the trivia bowl and student poster session!! Meet us at Crank Arm Brewing Company for some fun!! Crank Arm is just a short walk from the convention center. This will be a great time to get to know Audiologists from around the state outside the classroom! Learn more about Crank Arm Brewing Company HERE.
Triangle area Audiologists, make sure to put March 15th on your calendar for our first social!! We will be meeting at the Brier Creek Beer Garden. We can't wait to see you there! Look for more socials to be finalized in other areas soon.
Contact us if you want to plan or host a social in your area!
The session will encourage participation and discussion from all of the state's audiologists. We will be listening, engaging, brainstorming, and in some cases, making decisions on directions for the future. Some of the topics we will address include but are not limited to:
- Background on the formation of the association
- Update on all activities undertaken so far
- Needs and wants of our members
- Areas of concern in the profession that need our focus
- Vision for the future of audiology in NC
- Mission statement for our association
- Discussion of committee formation
- Integrating volunteers
- Any brainstorming, questions, concerns.
We want to make sure that our new association serves all audiologists and advances the profession forward. Please share your experiences and perspectives with us. We hope to see you there, or "see" you on our web broadcast.
