We have an important question:

Are you involved in the Oregon Academy of Audiology? Do you have any input on what happens to your licensure in the future? High-five if you are involved!!!

If not, we think you should consider getting involved, become a member and volunteer.

Now, more than ever, it is imperative that audiologists who are in private practice, the hospital setting, ENT offices, the educational setting, etc. and yes those at the VA, are all involved in the future decision-making process at the state level.

You cannot look away anymore and hope someone else looks out for our best interests. As you know, not everyone involved in the decision-making for the profession of audiology at the state level is an audiologist.

There are many reasons, but mainly because your scope of practice is defined by your state licensure, not by federal statute, and not by your national professional organization. It is also important that someone like you is involved in your state academy because of the ever-changing nature of hearing aid sales, HIS attempting to change their scope of practice, and there will be a need for licensure laws to be reviewed and updated as OTC hearing aids come into the market.

Send an email to to inquire about volunteering, asking what you can do because this is SO important right now. You cannot join after the stuff hits the fan because it will probably be too late.

Join now, get involved today!
