MEMBERSHIP NOTE – RENEWALS AND NEW MEMBERSHIPS
Our memberships are dual memberships in both the HLAA and the HLAA Sarasota/Manatee Chapter.
Veterans are free for the first year!
Join now and get the HLAA “Hearing Life Magazine”. Keep up with the technology!
The cost is $35 for an Individual membership, $45 for a Couple.
Among the many functions of HLAA National is the lobbying for people with hearing loss to have equal access in public venues. Note—your renewal notices will come from HLAA in Bethesda–if you do not get one, please let us know.
By the way, the Chapter receives free tickets to the Players Theatre, which has a hearing loop to help you hear better, and $10 Van Wezel (one of the largest looped theaters in the nation) tickets to one or two events are worth the membership fee.
Also, members receive 20% off the assistive and communication products sold by Harris Communications — https://www.harriscomm.com/.
