NHCASF Seeking Volunteers

Posted: February 3, 2021

The National Hearing Conservation Scholarship Foundation (NHCASF) is seeking new officers to replace those completing their three-year term in February 2021.

The mission of the NHCASF is to manage endowments and donations, and award scholarships to graduate students focusing on applied/practical studies in hearing loss prevention/hearing conservation at internationally accredited institutions.

The following 3-year positions are available soon:

Secretary: The Secretary documents minutes of meetings and distributes minutes to the Board for input, corrections, and additions prior to final approval.
Director: Directors provide input on Board matters and may be asked to take on additional duties at the discretion of the President.

Serving on the Foundation Board of Directors is an excellent opportunity to foster students into the world of hearing loss prevention/hearing conservation and also to help promote membership in NHCA.

Any voting NHCA member interested in applying for either of these positions should contact…

Delights the sense of hearing.
Chitter, chitter, hum.
