Jerger Future Leaders of Audiology Conference (JFLAC)
Recognizing the need to develop future leaders of the profession of Audiology, Academy leadership launched the Future Leaders of Audiology Conference (FLAC) in September 2008. The conference has been held biennially since that time and was renamed in 2012 to honor the leadership of one of the Academy’s founders and its first president, Dr. James Jerger. The JFLAC conferences have been highly successful, with more than 95% of the attendees taking on leadership roles in the Academy and other audiology organizations. JFLAC Graduates have served as Academy committee chairs, council chairs, members of the Board of Directors of Academy partner organizations and elected to serve on the Academy Board of Directors.
The next JFLAC will take place September 17-19, 2020 at the Academy headquarters in Reston, VA. A call for applications will be made on April 1, 2020. Stay informed by checking Academy communications regularly.
For more information, please contact Laurie Saunders, Vice President, Meetings and Education.
JFLAC 2020 is sponsored by the Oticon Foundation.
