The Opening General Session kicks off the ASHA Convention! This popular event brings everyone together to celebrate the speech, language, and hearing professional community and celebrates our 2023 theme, “Igniting Innovation.” You'll be welcomed by ASHA President Robert Augustine, who will update everyone about the Association’s activities and accomplishments and share her insights on the theme. Then, Convention Co-Chairs Kelly Farquharson and Jennifer Simpson will offer a preview of what’s in store for you in Boston this year—including special sessions, new events, and other highlights. Finally, we will welcome a special guest as keynote speaker.
The Opening General Session jumpstarts the ASHA Convention and will get you energized and enthused about the next 3 days. Join us on Thursday morning!
A recording of the 2022 Opening General Session is available to watch on the Virtual Library platform through the end of 2023.
