    National NSSLHA Leadership Applications Open


    You're honing your clinical skills. Now, hone your leadership skills-and reach your goals!

    National NSSLHA has five Executive Council, two Regional Council, and 100+ Student State Officer positions available that will give you unparalleled opportunities to learn and grow as a leader. 

    Check out what some of National NSSLHA's current leaders have to say about expanding their networks, accomplishing goals during their terms, and nabbing leadership opportunities: 

    "I was able to attend and present at the National Black Association for Speech-Language and Hearing (NBASLH) Convention." –Charlotte Miller, Vice President for Planning 

    "This year, we set a goal of sending 500 letters to legislators about CSD-related issues. We surpassed it and sent approximately 9,500 letters!" Michelle D'Mello, Vice President for Government Affairs and Public Policy 

    "It's important to step out of your comfort zone and try something new. Sometimes, the things you love the most are found in the moments we least expect." –Mary Smyers, Illinois Student State Officer 

    "From holding this position, I've gained the insight that being an online or distance-learning student does not have to hold you back. You should always reach for your dreams!" –Chelsea Woodard, Vice President for Academic Affairs 

    "I helped connect thousands of CSD students through NSSLHA events at the ASHA Convention last year in Boston!" Brandon Roppel, Vice President for Programming (AuD) 

    So, take all the knowledge and experience you've gained through MSLP and S.T.E.P. and put it towards a real-life opportunity with National NSSLHA! Not interested? Please share this with friends who may be!

    Hi Melanie,

    Thanks for sharing this! 

    I'm trying to figure out where to see which specific states have openings.  I'm also curious where to find out which states fall into which regions?  I recall, back when there were 10 regions, a map that clearly outlined the state breakdown.  Does something like this still exist?
