Dear USHA Member:

Thank you for joining USHA! We are excited to welcome you to the association. We want you to feel that you are a valued member of a great organization, whose goal is to serve the interests of its members through:

·    Continuing education opportunities and our annual spring convention

·    Advocacy with various state agencies and national organizations including the State Office of Education, Department of Occupational Licensing, the Utah State Legislature, and ASHA 

·    Promoting our professions in the community

·    Enhancing communication and collaboration with members from around the state

We also offer volunteer opportunities to serve as a member or chair of a committee, involved in serving on our Executive Board. As a member of the board, members have the opportunity to work hand-in-hand with other professionals who share a passion for being involved and giving back to their profession. I have attached a brief outline of responsibilities for each committee, to better help you understand the workings of our organization and to give you information, if you are interested in becoming more involved.

Please feel free to contact me at any time, if you have questions or ideas that could further USHA’s mission. Thank you again and we look forward to a great year!

Sincerely,

Sue Mallory, USHA President
