MAA Member Charlotte Godfrey:

"MAA was formed in the early 90's to meet the needs of Maryland's audiologists. At that time MSHA and ASHA conventions catered more to speech pathologists. I think MAA does a great job, and I am thankful we have volunteers who are willing to give up their personal time to work on our behalf politically and for career advancement. The conventions always have good speakers, are convenient, and afford a good opportunity to get necessary CEUs. Thank you, MAA committee members old and new! You've worked on our behalf for over 30 years!"

MAA Member Briana Holtan:

"MAA provides a united voice to advocate for audiology and ensures that audiologists are recognized as the managers of hearing and balance care. MAA’s past achievements speak for themselves!"

MAA Member Arifa Gir:

"The MAA convention allows me to become more politically involved to help make the future of audiology even brighter than it is today."
