Washington, DC: The Hearing Industries Association (HIA) is today announcing the promotion of Andrew Bopp to the position of HIA Executive Director, effective immediately.
Sandy Spekman, an HLAA member in the New York City/New Jersey area, would like to start something new, called Hearing Accessible Travel Hosts, or HATH. She would like volunteers from cities across the United States to be resource specialists, which will result in more open-captioned performances and lectures, availability of assistive devices, including hearing loops.
A record breaking attempt will take place this Sunday, September 14, in Seattle, Washington. When football fans converge) for the Seattle Seahawks home-opener against the San Francisco 49ers, they can expect something more than a football game – they can expect so much noise that it could damage their hearing for life.
In late May, 2013, the Seattle Seahawks announced they will caption their home games this fall at CenturyLink Field.
