As I prepared to begin my term as president of the American Academy of Audiology, I started looking at the other incredible leaders in our profession that I have around me, all working to make the Academy an impactful and strategic organization.
For my first President’s Message, I was thrilled to be joined by Kate Marchelletta, AuD, a long-time friend, volunteer, and Academy member, who is currently serving as chair of the Academy’s Membership Engagement and Recognition Committee.
Now that membership renewals are open, this is a wonderful to recognize that we are part of something bigger than ourselves, and as Academy members there is so much we can accomplish if we continue to innovate together and support each other.

The Academy is a professional home for us all.
