The Mission of the Vermont Speech-Language-Hearing Association is to serve the needs of speech-language pathologists and audiologists by providing opportunities for professional development and networking regarding communication disorders and advocating for the professional standards and interests of its members necessary to provide the highest quality services. President's message: "There are so many areas of importance to our profession. My approach is to focus on a few priorities and lay the groundwork for future Boards to work on other priorities. My priorities are: updating the licensing law with current language, inclusion of telemedicine, and a possible change in the administering agency. We must ensure input from our state’s audiologists to ensure that their perspective is properly represented; clarification on the role and training of assistants and aides to speech-language pathologists; establishing a standards and ethics committee; fair and clear Medicaid rates for speech-language pathology regardless of setting or billing agency; engaging students and associate members in the association. This is in addition to overseeing the basic operations of the association including: modernizing our website and other uses of social networking, offering high quality programs and other professional development opportunities for both disciplines of our profession, expanding our membership through active recruitment of potential members, and recognizing past and present exemplary members."
