Educational Opportunities by Experts & More

Chapter Meetings

West Valley Chapter meetings are held on the second Tuesday of the month from October through May. Come for our Brown Bag session from noon to 12:45 p.m. Or check in by 12:45 p.m. with the presentation until 2:30 p.m. 

Our monthly chapter meetings provide educational opportunities by experts in the hearing loss community. At our meetings, individuals with varying levels of hearing loss help one another by providing ideas, support, and sharing experiences to make life a little easier with hearing loss.

Our meetings are free, amplified and the room has an induction loop system allowing you to use your t-coil setting. We also use CART (Communication Access Realtime Translation) caption service, which means the meetings are captioned in real time.
