Provide Input on ASHA’s Advocacy Priorities for 2018

May 9, 2017

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.
