KC HLAA Chapter Leadership Team
(Pictured, l to r – Secretary Shanna Groves, Treasurer Minda Nelson, Walk4Hearing Captain Kelly Rogel, President Dennis Selznick, and Vice President Alex Vetor)

Each month, your KC HLAA Chapter Leadership Team meets to discuss future events and goals for the group. The last meeting, held August 10, covered the following topics:

* Walk4Hearing – This fundraising initiative of the National HLAA organization raises thousands of dollars every year for local chapters and national advocacy efforts. In the fall of 2009, the KC leaders attended the St. Louis, Missouri, Walk4Hearing. The St. Louis walk is held every 18 months, and the goal of the KC Chapter is to participate once again with St. Louis in its May 2011 walk. Kelly Rogel, pictured above with KC leaders, will serve as KC Walk4Hearing Captain. She will contact everyone on the local Walk4Hearing Committee to discuss plans, fundraising goals, and sponsorships.

* Future meetings – See calendar to the right of this page for upcoming events and locations.

* Social ideas – We are planning social activities every other month for the chapter. Send Secretary Shanna Groves your ideas at sgrovesuss@msn.com or post them on this page.

Our next leadership meeting will be September 7. Send your questions or comments about KC HLAA Leadership to President Dennis Selznick at getdennis@gmail.com.
