Can HBA Membership help my business?

Yes. We focus on supporting the business side of your practice

 

All our Board members work in their small, independent hearing care businesses.

We knew how it felt, isolated frustration, cut off from the maze of bureaucratic decisions that impact our livelihoods - often just trying to get a human voice to let us know if it was yes or no; sometimes if we didn't solve this, we'd lose everything.

 

We have some excellent professional bodies, yet we needed one to actively hone in on, shed light on what was happening to all our small businesses. So a few of us got together and formed HBA, determined to give it a try.

We’re audiologists and audiometrists running small businesses - we're not professional lobbyists - but in that so-called spare time, we navigated many long corridors, tackled a lot of complex, tough issues. We still do. We know the history of what threatens our businesses - and what lies ahead.

We've worked with a lot of dedicated people along the way, in public service and industry, and nurture many strong working relationships. We work hard to keep those valuable channels of communication open  -  ethics and  transparency is at the core of who we are.
 
Underpinning that is all our loyal Members - our strength in numbers. We still have a lot of work to do, and welcome your input.  Since we wrote this, Covid-19 has disrupted all our lives. We hope you will join us - join in our virtual meetings - let us know how we can help.
