With heartfelt gratitude and appreciation for all you have done,
We, the people with hearing loss of all levels and all ages,
With all the support our abilities can provide,
Do wish the Hearing Loss Association of America
As equal and excellent a next 40 years as the first 40 years, of

• Compassionate and kind understanding of our needs;
• Powerful and effective advocacy on our behalf;
• Programs to help us learn about the fruits of the Technology Explosion — our new devices, systems, and communications tools;
• And many more of the most devoted and intelligent staff persons, selfless volunteers, and dedicated chapter members anywhere!

Bravo on achieving 40 years of excellence and progress!
