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 receive one, please let us know.

By the way, the free Players Theatre tickets (looped so you hear and understand every word) and the $5 Van Wezel tickets (one or two events in a looped theater) are worth the membership fee for a volunteer organization that does so much for persons with hearing loss in Sarasota and Manatee counties.

NEW PERK!!! Also members receive 20% off the assistive and communication products sold by Harris Communications—

If you have any questions on Membership please feel free to contact Anne Taylor at  Membership Applications can be found at the Chapter Website,

Welcome to the Hearing Loss Association of America – Sarasota/Manatee Chapter (HLAA-Sarasota/Manatee), the leading organization for people with hearing loss in Sarasota and Manatee counties.

As a member of HLAA-Sarasota/Manatee you are part of an organization with a mission to provide information, support and advocacy to people with hearing loss. Through our advocacy work at the federal level (HLAA), we represent 48 million people with hearing loss in the United States.

As a member of HLAA-Sarasota/Manatee, you will also be supporting our on-going mission to provide greater hearing access in theatres, community venues, houses of worship and throughout the community as we represent the over 145,000 people with hearing loss in Sarasota and Manatee Counties. One out of five people in the two counties has a hearing loss, so you are not alone.

All our monthly meetings also provide Hearing Loop and CART (Captions) support so you will not miss a word from our expert speakers.
