Paul and I may fight each other occasionally, but that's because we think
so much alike!!!
I am a Fellow of AAA, I belong to the AAS (American Auditory Society), the
SHAV (Speech and Hearing Association of Virginia), CAOHC (Council for
Accreditation of Occupational Hearing Conservation), and probably some
other organizations which I have forgotten about, but the speech therapists
of ASHA can go elsewhere for their dues.
(and Virginia does have licensure, so I am licensed as an Audiologist and
also licensed as a hearing aid dispenser.)
