If you haven't already done so, please complete ASHA's public policy online survey. This survey requires you to rate 11 issues based on what's important to you. This is your opportunity to let ASHA know what issues are important to you and where you think ASHA's advocacy efforts should be directed next year. The survey closes on May 19, 2014.
We thank everyone who has participated in the annual input process. If you are interested in learning more about ASHA's advocacy efforts, then check out the 2013-2014 Agenda in Action [PDF]. The Agenda in Action is based on ASHA's annual public policy agenda (PPA) and summarizes the outcomes of the Association's advocacy efforts over the past year. The Agenda in Action, published annually by ASHA's Government Relations and Public Policy (GRPP) Board, shows the connection between the public policy agenda and ASHA's commitment to advocacy.
Members are invited to complete an online survey that will help ASHA's GRPP Board develop the Association's 2015 Public Policy Agenda. By focusing ASHA's advocacy efforts on issues most important to members, we have been able to achieve successful outcomes and advancements in federal and state legislative and regulatory arenas.
For your reference, the 2014 Public Policy Agenda is posted on ASHA's website.
If you have questions or need further information, feel free to contact George Lyons, ASHA's director of government relations and public policy, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
