Leadership Pathways

Members take many different leadership paths that lead them to volunteering for ASHA. Some members may volunteer for a community-based group or serve their state speech-language-hearing association. Still others may volunteer for a related professional organization or engage with ASHA in short, specific microvolunteer activities. No matter how different those paths may look and how varied people’s levels of effort may be, all volunteering is important—and ASHA recognizes that. Visit the video links below to discover the volunteer leadership pathways of four members. 


The Leadership Academy Discussion is a place where members can:

    • Exchange ideas on leadership
    • Discuss leadership concepts as they apply them to their profession
    • Discuss key takeaways from the Leadership Academy webinars
    • Get feedback on questions or challenges faced as a new or experienced
      leader in the workplace
    • Learn about resources from their peers, and share their experiences
      as leaders in their professions
