We are appreciative of our amazing volunteers!

 Student Ambassador Description

The PAA Student Ambassador's main jobs will be attending PAA board meetings once each quarter and giving any input you'd like to share.  You will then relay information back to students at your university and encourage your classmates to sign up for free PAA student membership.

Ambassadors attend and help at the PAA convention in the Fall (work at registration, hand out CEU forms at the end of the convention, etc.).  Through all of this, you will be able to meet many professionals across the state and start networking for internships, externships, and future jobs, in addition to learning behind the scenes information about audiology in PA!

To apply, please send your résumé to Maryann McCullough Nikander, Au.D. at and Jill Knecht, Au.D., at
