Welcome from the Convention Co-Chairs

Call for Convention Program Co-Chairs

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.

About the Program

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

Program Topic Areas

The education program covers 31 topic areas related to the professions.

Session Formats

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:

  • Master Classes (2 hours, live, in-person/onsite; ticketed)
  • Oral Seminars (1 hour; live, in-person/onsite or pre-recorded/virtual)
  • Technical Research and Technical Clinical Sessions (30 minutes; live, in-person/onsite or pre-recorded/virtual)
  • In-Person Poster Presentations (15-minute pre-recorded audio presentation and digital poster on the virtual platform, plus onsite, in-person 90-minute Q&A session with posterboard display)
  • Virtual-ONLY Poster Presentations (15-minute pre-recorded audio presentation and digital poster on the virtual platform; no Q&A session)

Read the full description of each session format offered at the ASHA Convention.

Invited and Jointly Developed Sessions

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
