After thoughtful deliberation and evaluation of the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, the Texas Speech-Language-Hearing Association (TSHA) Executive Board has made the difficult but necessary decision to pivot the TSHA 65th Annual Convention & Exhibition to a fully virtual event. 

TSHA is on a mission to empower our members to provide high quality, life-changing care for individuals with communication and related disorders. Attend the TSHA Virtual Convention, from the comfort and safety of your home or office and on your own time, to experience this commitment to excellence first hand. Earn continuing education credits and join in on unique networking opportunities with our collaborative community. 

Attention: Due to the weather emergency in Texas, we have extended the early registration deadline to March 7.
