Registration has opened for the Academy of Doctors of Audiology, (ADA) 2010 annual convention titled Ideas So BIG Only Texas Can Hold Em’, to be held from November 4 to 6, in San Antonio, Tex.

“Based on BIG ideas from ADA members and constituents, ADA’s convention schedule has been expanded this year to ensure big opportunities for networking and fun, without sacrificing the exceptional educational programming that attendees have come to expect from ADA," said ADA President, Tabitha Parent Buck, AuD. “

The event is designed for audiologists who are involved or interested in autonomous practice (regardless of practice setting), and will feature sessions that offer insightful and practical business knowledge and clinical education with a strong focus on providing business tools you can implement immediately, hands-on training, and skills to enhance your patient care. Topics fall into four main categories:

· Practice Development/Business Tools
· Diagnostic/Biomedical/ Research
· Amplification/Rehabilitation/Counseling
· Professional/Advocacy/Legal/Ethical Issues

ADA 2010 offers a Texas-sized program including four preconvention workshops on Thursday and a Saturday night special event, Amplitude, Attitude and Gratitude, which will feature live comedy, dinner, and dancing—plus the chance to celebrate the audiology profession and the professionals who are moving it forward.

ADA is dedicated to the advancement of practitioner excellence, high ethical standards, professional autonomy, and sound business practices in the provision of quality audiologic care. ADA offers programming, services and resources to audiologists and students who are, or who desire to be autonomous practitioners.
