American Hearing Aid Associates (AHAA) will have its 12th Annual Convention February 20-23, 2008, in Orlando at Disney World’s Contemporary Resort. More than 450 hearing health care professionals comprising associates in the AHAA network as well as others are expected to attend the convention.

According to AHAA, each day’s program is divided into five tracks to appeal to CEO/owners, practice managers, audiologist/dispensers, front office personnel, and practice development representatives in all sizes and types of practices.

AHAA also reports that in keeping with its mission, the program will show attendees how to increase practice revenue and profits, customer satisfaction, and employee productivity.

“Our Associates tell us year after year that the convention is their main source of learning, networking, relationship building, and idea exchanging.  Each year’s program is based on AHAA’s continual research of our members’ needs and interests. This one will feature the latest business insights, trends, and practices that can be implemented as soon as the attendee returns home," Tina Soika, president of AHAA, says.

The convention’s program is scheduled to offer more than 35 ASHA, AAA, and IHS-approved sessions.  AHAA states the sessions will cover all aspects of running a practice, including CEO effectiveness, growth strategies, goal setting, selling against price, front office productivity, customer service, and sales planning and marketing.

Many major manufacturers are planning to exhibit, according to AHAA, and many of them also will present workshops designed to bring attendees up to date on the latest changes and trends in technology and products.
