CSHA Needs You!

Why become a member of CSHA? CSHA is our state’s professional organization for SLPs, SLPAs, and speech students that is run by a board of passionate SLPs from across CA. It is an organization that promotes and protects our field through legislative advocacy (We have our own lobbyist!). Most recently, CSHAs advocacy helped CFs and SLPAs continue their required supervision via teleconference rather than in-person during SIP. Thank you, CSHA!


CSHA is morphing into an updated organization seeking fresh faces, new opinions, and members who expect change. Please join CSHA if you want to join an organization that is actively seeking to increase diversity, support our SLPs of color, and give space for all voices. Become a member and remember that you can use your SPG budget toward professional memberships such as CSHA.


The CSHA Convos series is just one way that CSHA is supporting diversity and inclusion through our organization. Don’t miss the remainder of these important conversations in the 2020 series, and keep an eye out for CSHA Convos continuing into 2021!
