A Legacy of Advocacy
Through the years, the Maryland Speech-Language-Hearing Association has built a tradition of successful advocacy for its members and for the consumers they serve. Our advocacy focuses on legislative issues and community needs.
Focused Legislative Action
For each session of the Maryland General Assembly, the MSHA Executive Board develops a legislative agenda in conjunction with our lobbying firm, Rifkin, Levitan, Livingston, and Silver. The agenda helps to focus our communication with local legislators to maximize our influence on policymaking. Through various communications channels, MSHA reports on actions taken throughout the legislative session that may affect our profession and clients.

Dedicated Community Action
MSHA members are daily advocates within the Maryland community, bringing clarity to the issues faced by our clients and their families as they deal with speech-language and hearing disorders. MSHa strives to provide community resources and our Members participate in (or organize) area events that raise awareness and support for people of all abilities.
