you interested in learning more about ASHA's advocacy efforts? If your answer is
yes, then check out the 2013–2014
Agenda in Action. 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.
Each year, ASHA's GRPP Board solicits membership to learn
what legislative and regulatory issues matter most. The results are used to
develop the PPA. Issues included in the PPA become the focus of ASHA resources
and efforts allocated for advocacy.
From April 21 through May 19, 2014,
the GRPP Board is soliciting member input to develop next year's PPA. Please
take 5 minutes to complete an online survey and let the Board know what issues
are important to you!
For your reference, the 2014 Public Policy
Agenda is posted on ASHA's website.
