Buffalo State National Student Speech-Language-Hearing Association

2016-17 NSSLHA Board Members

The Buffalo State chapter of the National Student Speech-Language-Hearing Association (NSSLHA) provides an opportunity for students studying speech-language pathology to expand on their knowledge from the classroom into the community. This organization meets monthly in order to fulfill specific goals, such as discuss graduate school preparation, career development, and volunteer and fundraising efforts.

NSSLHA is a great resource for students entering, or currently in, the field of communication sciences and disorders. National membership allows students access to many peer-reviewed articles and information about current events and news in the field, as well as a discount on membership into ASHA.

The mission of the NSSLHA Chapter of Buffalo State is to increase awareness of students in the professions of audiology and speech-language pathology by providing members with the support and advocacy to succeed while promoting community involvement and leadership development.

This student-run organization is open to all speech-language pathology majors, at the undergraduate and graduate level. Members are required to pay a $15 due. New members are always welcome throughout the year, however if a member chooses to register after the deadline, their dues must be paid at that time. Members are encouraged to come to the monthly meetings, as well as participate in NSSLHA events. Feel free to contact any of the officers for more information.

To apply for the Buffalo State chapter, please fill out this form and submit it to any of the officers or to the NSSLHA office.

We also encourage all speech-language pathology students to join the National NSSLHA organization. Doing so now will allow for a discounted membership into ASHA, as well as provide other great benefits such as access to members-only peer-reviewed articles.
