Your Misson, Should You Choose to Accept it... Atttend MSHA 2014

Dear Colleagues,


Our 2014 MSHA Convention Planning Team’s mission is to formulate an outstanding Convention with the best possible learning outcomes and social gatherings with others in our field of work.

The 2014 MSHA Convention has established an innovative speaker line-up which will provide tools for expansion of skills and methods for relating to our day-to-day practices. We will begin Thursday evening with the popular Pre-Convention Session of “Ask MSHA,” which will be followed by the 2nd Annual Round Robin for speech-language pathologists and audiologists focusing on both school and professional topics. Two (.2) CEUs will be gained from attending these sessions before the Convention officially begins!

While picking up your Convention packet, you will want to inspect the MSHA Cares table which will be supporting the Stuttering Foundation of America in honor of our guest speaker for the President’s Luncheon, Leon “Jigger” Sirois. MSHA Cares will be selling t-shirts, as well as providing a “Wall of Honor” for contributions to be submitted to the Stuttering Foundation of America.

Be sure to preregister for your lunch, which will be served in the Exhibit Hall on Friday. You won’t need to leave Tan-Tar-A to shop! The Exhibit Hall will open its doors Friday morning at 10:30 am hosting the Silent Auction throughout the day. You will have fun bidding for items in the Silent Auction, which benefits our Student Scholarship Fund. Our exhibitors will be offering a variety of professional and personal items that you will definitely want to check out!

The Convention Planning Team is thrilled to welcome 14 invited speakers in our fields! We are honored to have Leon Sirois speak during the President’s Luncheon. Please read his bio in this program. Mr. Sirois has a heartfelt passion for the Stuttering Foundation and will share his life adventures during his luncheon speech.

The exciting Quest for the Cup will take place on Saturday evening with a Tailgate Party occurring before the Quest!
You will definitely have an exciting evening cheering on your alma mater while gaining an additional CEU in the process!

See you at the 2014 MSHA Convention in April!
