American Hearing Aid Associates (AHAA), Chadds Ford, Pa, will hold its 14th annual convention on February 10 to 13, 2010, in Dallas at the Gaylord Texan Resort.

More than 450 hearing care professionals—Associates in the AHAA network—and others are expected to attend.

“We are going to immerse our Associates at this convention into practice-changing ideas and tools that work,” said AHAA President Tina Soika, in a statement released by AHAA. “They will return home more ready than ever to improve all aspects of their practices, especially growing revenue.”

The convention’s program will offer nearly 40 ASHA, AAA, and IHS-approved sessions covering all aspects of running a practice, says AHAA, noting the sessions will cover the interests of CEOs/owners, directors of operations/practice managers, hearing care providers, telemarketing/front office personnel, and practice development representatives in all sizes and types of practices.

Using a new format, the program will feature highly interactive, hands-on workshops where attendees will share ideas and experiences with one another more than listen to solo presenters. Heavy emphasis will be placed on showing Associates how to gain the most benefit from AHAA’s Navigator online service, which gives Associates 16 links to tools a practice owner/manager needs to develop, focus, and drive measureable objectives in growing the practice, says AHAA.

Many major manufacturers will be exhibiting. Several of them also will present workshops designed to bring attendees up to date on the latest changes and trends in technology and products.
