We apologize to those of you that have been trying to renew your membership online and were unable to process the payment. We are in the middle of switching website servers and that renewal reminder email was not supposed to be sent out. The PayPal option will not work until we get everything switched over to the new website. If you would still like to renew your membership before we get that done you can mail the payment to:
1137 E 2100 S, SLC, UT 84106
Thank you for being patient with us while we figure this out

The board of USHA, with the consent of the membership, recently voted to change the membership year from July 1 to June 30 to the calendar year staring January 1. This change will help dispel confusion on the part of many members who call or write to USHA with questions. Also, this change will bring our membership year into line with that of many other professional organizations in the hope that when people are thinking about renewing their memberships, they will also think of renewing their USHA membership. Finally, the change will allow for better planning of the USHA Spring Conference to meet the needs of our members. For those of you who have renewed your membership just before or at the Spring Conference, normally your membership would have ended on June 30th. However, with the change, your membership will now be extended to December 31, 2011. For those who sign up after June 30th for membership in the new year, payment of your membership dues will result in a membership that will run through December 31, 2012. We thank you for your membership in USHA that supports our efforts to protect and promote the professions of Speech Language Pathology and Audiology in Utah. We welcome your participation with us in these efforts both with the legislature and with the public.
