HLAA-Sarasota/Manatee hosts monthly meetings, organizes social events and participates in community outreach. In the past few years, the Chapter has grown to over 200 members and the Board is committed to continuing that growth. In order to accomplish this, your support is necessary. We always have a need for volunteers for the Chapter meetings, such as membership assistance, 50/50 raffle and social hour.
We have a special wish list for:
- Graphic Artist

The Chapter is active in Outreach at the Farmers Market, Health Fairs, public events and knowledgeable members are encouraged to assist us.
There are so many ways you can make a difference.
Please contact Anne Taylor at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can pay it forward with your time to help educate and advocate for the 135,000 community members with hearing loss.
We are looking for volunteers in the below areas. Requirements – You must be an avid e-mail user who checks your e-mail on a daily basis. All our communications are by e-mail.
