Why Should You Be a SCSHA Member?

You may be asking, "Why should I join/rejoin SCSHA this year?" Below are just of the few ways SCSHA has helped the profession in the past year. Check out the highlights in pink.

1.  Members-Only Website Section: Members only sections include job postings, newsletters, resources, and a new Member Benefit site. New for 2024 Members: We are excited to announce our new partnership with TicketsatWork! Now you’ll have access to exclusive savings on theme parks, hotels, concerts, movie tickets, & more.

2. Advocating for Change:We advocate on behalf of our members in private practice, schools, early intervention, and medical settings and consistently work toward improvements in reimbursement and removing barriers to accessing care.  Our SCSHA leadership meets with policy makers at the highest level to promote legislative and policy change for the good of patients served by SC SLPs and Audiologists, with the help of a lobbyist.

Lots of CE Opportunities: You will find a list of association events on our website, I hope that you will go ahead and mark your calendar now, so that you don’t miss anything.  Thanks again for your membership investment with SCSHA again this year.  In 2023, we offered 23 CE hours (2.3 ASHA hrs) including Ethics and Supervisory hours.
