As I opened up the last Audiology Today magazine I was absolutely thrilled to see all the new Student Academy of Audiology members. As names filled up a couple of pages I began to realize how the word of SAA is spreading. Not only is it spreading through us, Board of Directors, but it is spreading because of the growth of each schools SAA chapter. I would like to welcome each new SAA member and leave you all with a little note. "I hope the benefits that I have received from SAA are just as beneficial for you as they are for me." Remember, you are the future of Audiology and being a member of SAA is the first step to open the doors to your future!
