HLAA-LCO is Temporarily Being Run by a Steering Committee
Because of the retirement of some Board members it is not possible to carry on some of the functions of HLAA-LCO that you are used to.
HLAA Lane County is not disappearing; the organization is now guided by a steering committee rather than by a Board. The Steering Committee will guide the Lane County Chapter until a full Board can be constituted at which time the Steering Committee will become a planning committee of the Board. Other changes include:
- use of postcards to communicate with the membership instead of producing a newsletter;
- quarterly meetings held the second Thursday of the month as usual: the first meeting will be September 14 (7-9pm at the Hilyard Center); and
- listing programs in the HLAA-OR newsletter.
We will depend more on email and on this website (hearinglosslane.org) to communicate with the membership so if your email address needs updating, please let me know. In addition, if you have questions about the Committee, please let Clark Anderson (firstname.lastname@example.org) know.
