The mission of RISHA is to support the professions of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology through advocacy, public awareness, and professional development on behalf of its members and the individual they serve.
The 2017 RISHA Membership drive has started, and we hope that you renew your membership, or join this year. There are many benefits to a RISHA membership which include: opportunities to network with colleagues from across the state, Better Hearing and Speech Month at the State House in May, discounted registration at the Annual Conference, website with Private practice list, free continuing education events throughout the year, and SLP of the Year (as part of the RIDE Teacher recognition Program). Please renew your membership by 12/31/16 to receive the same low rate.
When you renew your membership, please consider making a donation to the Patricia M. Stephens Scholarship fund. Each year RISHA awards a scholarship to a student pursuing a career in our field.
Speakers wanted! RISHA is always looking for local speakers to share their ideas with the RISHA Membership. If you or someone you know would like to speak at one of our events, please contact us.
The Conference Committee is still working on the details for the 2017 Annual Conference. Please be on the look-out for updates!
There are always opportunities to volunteer with RISHA. Please consider helping our state organization by volunteering your time and talent. We are always looking for new ideas to strengthen and grow RISHA.
I look forward to hearing from you and seeing you at upcoming RISHA events!
