    Please note that similarly sized organizations have recently been the target of sham housing companies, which have contacted other organizations’ sponsors, exhibitors and/or registrants with fraudulent offerings of hotel rooms at significant discounts. As a precaution, this post is intended to keep you informed and to advise that no one from PAA or our conference hotel(s) will contact you to request personal information including, but not limited to, credit card information.

    If you are contacted by anyone asking if you need a room reservation for a PAA conference, or if they advise they’re representing our conference venues, please do not provide them with any information, but collect as much information as you can from them and pass it along to PAA.

    2019 PAA Silent Auction 

    The Pennsylvania Academy of Audiology is hosting its 26th Annual Silent Auction.  The proceeds from the PAA Silent Auction event help support the goals of PAA, more specifically, all audiologists in Pennsylvania. 

    Items can be donated for the auction OR a monetary contribution can be made to allow us to procure items for the Auction.   Donated items can be related to the field of audiology (supplies, books, or pre-payment for next year’s conference), or unrelated to audiology (gift certificates, things that can be assembled into a gift basket, sports memorabilia, items with a Pennsylvania theme, etc).   Donated items are tax deductible.

    The Goals of the Pennsylvania Academy of Audiology

    • To improve and promote the evaluation and professional services provided to all people with hearing impairment.

    • To improve and promote public and consumer awareness of hearing disorders, their prevention, and their solutions.
    • To advocate the rights and protection of all consumers who seek audiological services and hearing health care products to improve their hearing.
    • To provide leadership for upgrading professional standards by offering quality continuing education and by advocating the profession of audiology to regulatory and legislative bodies.
