Sign Language Service Available for 2014 Annual Meeting
AHA Staff, September 2013
Hearing-impaired members who will need sign-interpreting service at the AHA annual meeting must notify the AHA Headquarters Office and register for the meeting by December 1, 2013. The request should include the sessions they plan to attend. The AHA will, with the assistance of the Local Arrangements Committee and the Registry of Interpreters, secure the services of appropriate ASL interpreters. The AHA will assume the cost for up to nine hours of sign language interpreting service or a maximum of $400 per member, whichever is less.
An interpreter may also be provided upon request for the Presidential Address (Friday, January 3, 5:00 p.m.) and the Annual Business Meeting (Saturday, January 4, 4:45 p.m.). Please contact Sharon K. Tune, AHA Director of Meetings, (or via mail at 400 A St. SE, Washington, DC 20003), by the deadline of December 1, 2013, if you would like to request this service.
