Thank you to all our members and volunteers who made the 2020-2021 term a success. We recognize YOU and all of your accomplishments!
SAA Board of Directors
The 2021-2022 SAA Board of Directors includes the president, president-elect, and eight members-at-large who are national SAA members that are elected to one-year terms aside from the president-elect.
The SAA Board of Directors serves as the connection among the national SAA, local SAA chapters, student volunteers, and student members. Board members represent the breadth and depth of SAA initiatives and interests by following the outlined Roles and Responsibilities and by serving as committee chairs guided by the strategic direction in the areas of public awareness, philanthropy, leadership, education, communications, chapter and member relations, and the annual AAA Conference programming.
“SAA is empowering audiology students with diverse backgrounds- including but not limited to culture, race, religion, sex/gender, sexual orientation and individuals with disabilities- for leadership positions in National SAA.”Melissa Baker
Member of the Diversity and Inclusion Task Force
2022-2023 SAA Board Member-at-Large
SAA Executive Committee
The SAA Executive Committee ensures that the organization meets the current and future needs of students by aligning the organization’s mission and vision statements to those needs. The committee also ensures that the policies and initiatives of the organization align with the mission and vision statements. Additionally, the committee will accomplish strategic goals that align with the mission and vision but fall outside the charge of individual committees, including the streamlining of organizational initiatives and resources, collaboration with outside organizations, the stewardship of the organization’s finances, and other duties as required.
The SAA Executive Committee is composed of the president, president-elect, past president, secretary, and the chair of the SAA Communications Committee.
Nominations and Elections
Elections for the SAA Board of Directors are held annually in February. Applications for nominees are accepted the fall prior, usually opening in October, and the official slate is recommended by the SAA Nominations Committee to the standing SAA Board of Directors for approval. Notifications are sent to current SAA members (Undergraduate Associate Members are not eligible to run) when the call for applications is open and the website is updated with additional information on how to apply.
Interested in applying for the SAA Board of Directors? Questions can be sent to Stephanie Tittle, AuD, SAA Nominations Committee Chair.
