The Convention Co-Chair for Audiology, Mark DeRuiter, and the Convention Co-Chair for Speech-Language Pathology, Edie Hapner, welcome you to the 2022 ASHA Convention and invite you to submit a proposal to present. In partnership with the Convention Program Committee, they are working to offer a wide array of sessions to meet the continuing education needs of communication sciences and disorders professionals. Proposals that reflect our theme, "Reframe Your Thinking: Resilience Reinvented" are encouraged.
The Call for Co-Chairs for the 2024 ASHA Convention in Dallas, Texas is open. ASHA seeks qualified and enthusiastic individuals to share responsibility for the development and management of the education program for the ASHA Convention. The submission deadline is May 31, 2022.
The ASHA Convention is the strongest educational program for audiologists, speech-language pathologists, speech and hearing scientists, and related professionals. We are continuing with the hybrid in-person/virtual event format again this year where our traditional in-person convention in New Orleans will be paired with the Virtual Library of pre-recorded, on-demand sessions. All education sessions are eligible for ASHA Continuing Education Credit or professional development hours.
The education program covers 31 topic areas related to the professions.
We learned some things about what worked and what didn’t work from our experience last year and have modified the in-person and virtual session formats:
Read the full description of each session format offered at the ASHA Convention.
Some sessions feature presenters who have been specially invited to present on a topic by the Convention Program Committee, a Special Interest Group (SIG), or a Specialty Certification Board. Some Invited Sessions are a collaborative effort and are jointly developed by a combination of those entities.
The presenters of these sessions hold expertise on the topic or subject area of the session. Sessions featuring invited presenters are noted in the session descriptions. There is no special sign-up or ticket required for these sessions and everyone is encouraged to attend them. SIG affiliates may be particularly interested in SIG-sponsored sessions
All ASHA Convention education sessions are listed in Program Planner and mobile app. The planner and the app allow you to browse sessions, read session descriptions and author bios, and view presenter disclosures. Use the planner and app to save sessions you want to attend to your personal schedule. Session materials, such as handouts, are also accessed through the Program Planner and mobile app. They will be updated with the 2022 sessions in late July.
