About the Awards
HLAA Conventions are a time to honor HLAA State organizations (associations and offices), Chapters and others with well-deserved awards. HLAA State organizations and Chapters find unique and meaningful ways to serve member needs as they reach out and make an impact. National awards acknowledge these achievements and contributions.
The HLAA Awards Committee examines applications based on criteria described with each award and considers ongoing projects and activities. Individuals nominated for awards must be current HLAA members before being nominated. The person nominated for the Family Involvement Award, however, does not have to be an HLAA member, but the person with the hearing loss whom they support should be. HLAA might not present awards in each category every year.
