The Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA) has formally begun its search for a new executive director. The current executive director, Brenda Battat, announced in the summer of 2012 that she would retire at the end of August 2013.

According to a recent press release, HLAA is conducting a national search “for a leader who is visionary, dynamic, diplomatic, highly competent, organized, warm, collaborative, and who has excellent people skills. The successful candidate will possess in-depth knowledge of issues related to hearing loss and must be strongly committed to improving the life circumstances of those with hearing loss.”

Battat has been with HLAA since 1989, serving in several roles including director of public policy and deputy executive director. She became executive director in March 2008.

Complete details including the position announcement, job description, candidate qualifications, how to apply, as well as more information about HLAA can be found on HLAA’s website.
