This Week in Bethesda (TWIB) is a weekly report from the HLAA National office. It started years ago as an internal bullet point report to the HLAA Board of Trustees and former Board members. Then, TWIB morphed into a more detailed report that was also shared with Chapter leaders to read at their meetings, cut and paste into their newsletters, or post on chapter and state websites.
By popular demand, we are making TWIB more widely available. TWIB will be posted on hearingloss.org on the homepage under “HLAA Updates.” We will also put it on the State and Chapter Development blog, post it to the Leaders Listserv, and send it via email to the leaders we have on record here.
TWIB is not the only news channel from the national office. Be sure to encourage people to sign up for the free, online HLAA e-News. It is published two times monthly with one issue focusing on HLAA advocacy work (“HLAA in Action”) and one on general news. You will also find invaluable news and information in Hearing Loss Magazine (a benefit of joining HLAA) and on hearingloss.org
Please note: There are some occasions where TWIB is not published; for example, holiday periods, HLAA Convention time, and when the Board of Trustees meet.
In the months ahead, we will be looking at all the ways we communicate with our members and what reaches people best. TWIB will certainly be part of the discussion.
Thanks for reading, share TWIB, and have a great weekend.
