Who Should Attend
This event is the annual meeting of the licensed hearing aid dispensers in Texas and across the Southwest. It is open to all licensed dispensers, apprentices, temporary permit holders, exhibitors, and spouses/significant others. All proceeds realized from this convention go to the THAA general operating fund to help pay for expenses incurred by the association in representing dispensers before the Texas Legislature, the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation, and other state agencies affecting licensed dispensers in Texas. Dispensers attending this meeting are doing more than just acquiring CE hours. They are supporting the only organization in the state that protects their license, their profession, and their livelihood. In addition, they continue their professional education by attending truly meaningful and worthwhile CE presentations.
