All events sponsored by our Chapter of the Hearing Loss Association of America have been cancelled, through the end of the year, by the Board of Trustees due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.  However, you will still be able to attend meetings and seminars via Zoom and online webinars.

Although we may not be able to greet one another in person during these challenging days, we want you to know the Chapter is here to assist you with any concerns or questions you have.  
There will be numerous presentations and webinars from our Chapter, the HLAA Florida State Association, and the national HLAA.  These announcements will be sent by email blast and posted on the Chapter’s Facebook page.

Our primary goal remains to provide you, and the 160,000 or more people who have hearing loss in our area, with the information and support you need. You can reach our Chapter President, Anne Taylor, by emailing: or at 941-244-0452.
