The American Academy of Audiology is a professional organization of individuals dedicated to providing quality hearing care to the public. We enhance the ability of our members to achieve career and practice objectives through professional development, education, research, and increased public awareness of hearing disorders and audiologic services.
As a professional organization of individuals, the Academy is required by law to have set rules for governing the operations of the organization. These rules are our bylaws established in 1988, and revised as needed per the Board of Directors. Read the American Academy of Audiology's Bylaws.
NEW! Proposed Changes to Bylaws: Comments Due by June 17, 2019.
The American Academy of Audiology Board of Directors has proposed changes to the current bylaws. The proposed changes rename the Audiology Technician Affiliate membership category to Audiology Assistant Affiliate to reflect better the role relative to the audiologist.
Per the Academy's bylaws, before the proposed changes can be adopted, Academy members have 30 days to review and comment on the changes. Member comments will be examined and discussed by the Board of Directors before a decision is made regarding the proposed amendments. We are requesting your input.
