What does MSHA do for you as an Audiologist or Speech Language Pathologist? Here are just a few things:

  • Annual membership at a cost effective rate 20 cents a day

  • Annual MSHA convention with discounts given to members

  • Quarterly newsletters

  • Awards and honors

  • Lobbyist to advocate and monitor at the state legislature and licensing board

  • Committee and task forces to work with state organizations to promote our professions

  • Opportunities for participation and leadership in Association governance - elected and appointed positions are available for members annually

  • Email communication with alerts and information

  • Continuous monitoring of activities that directly affect our practices with local, state, and national agencies as well as health care organizations

  • Strength in numbers - with both audiology and SLP members together, we are stronger at a legislative level

  • Liaison with the American Speech-Language Hearing Association (ASHA)

  • Annual opportunities for continuing education including free webinars

  • A new dedicated website which provides the opportunity for professionals across the state to keep up on events related to our professions

  • Forum to provide public awareness and education as well as appropriate referrals for both consumers and other professionals

  • Forum for job referrals and employment opportunities

  • Networking and building friendships with other professionals around the state


Are you interested in volunteering for the association? We need your leadership skills, your experiences, your ideas, and your organizational skills to serve our colleagues throughout Montana! I encourage you to take a step forward by joining a committee, or by submitting your name for one of our many board positions that become vacant annually. We need representation from every corner of our beautiful state to make sure all voices and clinical contexts are heard. I look forward to hearing from you! I want to also ask you to encourage your colleagues to join. Please feel free to contact any member of the Executive Board if you have questions and/ or ideas. We welcome your input and your participation. Together we can accomplish great things in Montana!
