Audiology at the ASHA Convention 

With timely educational sessions for audiologists in all stages of their careers and fun networking events, the ASHA Convention in Orlando is THE place for audiologists and audiology students to be November 21–23, 2019. The ASHA Convention is the largest annual gathering that brings together audiologists, speech-language pathologists, and speech, language, and hearing scientists—where clinicians, faculty, researchers, and students will find an exciting lineup of presentation topics and formats. In addition to best-in-class education sessions, the ASHA Convention provides valuable career connections and opportunities to meet colleagues from other parts of the country and the world.

While there, visit the Concierge Learning Center in the Convention Center and meet some of the ASHA Audiology practices team. Our experienced audiologists can help you find audiology related sessions and suggest additional courses and resources to investigate after the Convention concludes. Fill out a suggestion card and be entered into a drawing for ASHA Store giveaways. 

Also be sure to visit the Career Fair , where you can search available jobs, polish and/or post your resume, and schedule onsite interviews with employers. Visit the Empowerment Zone and hone your skills in talking with the media, public speaking, and personal branding and storytelling to sharpen your social, political, and personal advocacy skills. Come share what you care about, channel your passion, and find your path to action.

The Audiology Lounge, sponsored by Sprint CapTel, is located in the Audiology exhibits area and provides a place to stop and recharge with coffee and a snack. Recharge your devices, too!
