2015-2016 SAA Conference Subcommittee

The SAA Conference Committee has proven themselves, again, by putting together the fourth annual SAA Conference at AudiologyNOW! 2016. The conference this year had a huge turnout of over 150 students, a record for all SAA Conferences thus far. This year we had a wide variety of speakers that lectured on six various topics including tinnitus, acoustic trauma in the military, auditory neuropathy, assistive technologies, medical audiology, and vestibular assessments.

This year, the conference changed it up a bit by including a professionals networking luncheon event. Academy professionals that serve in a wide variety of avenues were invited to have lunch with students during the conference. This gave students the opportunity to ask questions and meet with other like-minded students. The SAA Conference ended by hosting our annual New Professionals Panel where students could ask important questions on topics such as how to look for jobs, where to begin the resume process, and how to stay involved once they graduate.

Next year’s SAA Conference Chair is already gearing up to create an even bigger and better conference so stay tuned!
