Dear Members, Student Affiliates, and Associates of ISHA,
A new year means preparation; preparation to develop and achieve new goals. This year, ISHA is diligently working to achieve several goals: increase membership, provide additional continuing education opportunities, and offer scholarships to students in the fields of audiology and speech-language pathology.
While you can play an integral role in assisting ISHA to achieve its 2018 goals, I am writing to specifically ask for your help with the goal of raising $2000.00 toward scholarship funds. ISHA will hold its Second Annual Silent Auction during Spring Convention, which takes place April 5-7.
Last year, ISHA held its First Annual Silent Auction during Spring Convention and raised a total of $1768.00. Popular Silent Auction items included designer accessories, gift certificates, wine baskets, and collegiate gift sets.
ISHA is currently accepting donations for Silent Auction items. So far, the following items have been committed:
· Wine baskets (2)
· Skincare basket
· Purdue basket (2)
· Vera Bradley bag with office supplies
· Agnes and Dora clothing
· Basket on behalf of the Indiana Voice Clinic
· St Mary's basket
· Notre Dame basket
· Movie basket
If you are interested in donating a gift set or basket, please follow this link to confirm your donation. https://coms.wufoo.com/forms/z1fomxcd0yib8du/ If you have contact information for a business/organization that might be interested, please contact me. ISHA will also accept monetary donations for the scholarship fund!
With the continually rising costs of education, it is important as ever to provide funds for students in the state of Indiana on their educational path to becoming future audiologists and speech-language pathologists and the future of ISHA.
