HLAA: SPBC

The South Palm Beach County Chapter of the HLAA is a non-profit, non-sectarian educational organization devoted to the welfare and interests of those who are hearing impaired and committed to participating fully in the hearing world.

Local Chapter Meetings this Spring were cancelled. Virtual meetings on a local and national level are ongoing. The Annual HLAA Conference that was to be held in New Orleans the week of June 15 has been replaced with “EXPERIENCE HLAA” over two days, June 18-19. Click here for details and to register for free.

Our Mission:  To support and empower people with all degrees of hearing loss — to help them understand their challenges and develop strategies to be safe and to thrive.

Together, we can make hearing loss visible! Friends, relatives, employers, medical professionals and business owners are always welcome at chapter meetings. The point of meeting? To socialize, share tips and ask questions of people who have similar experiences.

Veterans with Hearing Loss: In addition to our local chapter meetings, please visit here to join the HLAA Veterans Across America Virtual Chapter. The mission of the Chapter is to provide education, be an advocate for veterans with hearing loss, and to provide a support system to help them to return and adjust to civilian life. “If you are a military veteran with hearing loss or a caregiver of a veteran, we welcome you.”

Did you miss our meeting in October 2019? Pamela Guerrier, Director of Palm Beach County’s Office of Equal Opportunity spoke about Palm Beach County’s Office of Equal Opportunity and how staff can help people with hearing loss in places of public accommodation and on the job. Read more>

Monthly chapter meetings are held at 10:00 am on the third Friday of each month, September through May, at the South County Civic Center in Delray Beach. (March, April and May 2020 have been cancelled.)
