HLAA-FL Bylaws Revisions – Board Meeting August 19th, 2017

  • Revised Hearing Loss Association of Florida Bylaws for Consideration
  • HLAA Florida Chapter Updates
  • Florida State Association Board Meeting – August 19, 2017



Greetings to all Hearing Loss Association of America – Florida Members:

Your Hearing Loss of America Florida State Board has been hard at work undertaking the task of updating the State Association Bylaws. This is a result of various changes in how the State Board functions, how technology is impacting our world and the need for a more focused approach to guiding the State activities. Additional changes include a stronger Policy and Procedures Manual that will serve as a daily guide in how business is conducted by the Board.

A draft of proposed Bylaw revisions for your consideration is posted on the State website at hlaa-fl.org. The Board will vote on final acceptance of the proposed Bylaws on August 19th, 2017, at the State Board meeting in Lakeland, Florida. All HLAA members residing in Florida are eligible to review and respond to the revised changes for consideration.

During your review, please note there are two primary keys to ensure you, as the reader, can understand where the State Association Bylaws were vs. the proposed changes to be voted on this August 19th. Wherever there is a strike through, or a line through the middle of the text, it is an indicator of what is being deleted from the Bylaws as they stand today. Wherever there is an underline below the text, it is an indicator of what is being added and will be voted on August 19th.

Again, this serves as notice that the Florida State Association Bylaws revisions for consideration is available for review among all current HLAA members residing in Florida. The Florida State Board encourages you to take the time to read and comment on the proposed revision. Simply visit hlaa-fl.org, read the document and share your thoughts.

The State Association can only consider that which is reviewed, commented upon, and shared via the State email at hlaaflorida@yahoo.com.

Thank you in advance for your consideration and comments!


The new State Chapter Coordinator, Tanya Williams, can be reached at FL2016scc@gmail.com
