Ever wonder how ASHA sets
its advocacy priorities each year? Decisions are primarily based on member
input, so we want to hear from you! This online survey asks you to rate 11
issues (i.e., what matters most, least, or not at all). By rating issues
according to importance, you will help ASHA set the right priorities for 2018. The survey closes on May 31, 2017.
Every year, ASHA's Government Relations and
Public Policy (GRPP) Board develops the Association's annual 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. 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.
For your reference, the 2017 Public
Policy Agenda is posted on ASHA's website.
