Help spread the word about Specialty Board Certification at the ASHA Convention

ASHA is providing a booth in the Exhibit Hall at the 2017 ASHA Convention, so that we can provide information to SLPs and AuDs who are interested in becoming certified specialists. The booth number is 1449. The booth needs at least one person to staff the booth while the Exhibit Hall is open. We hope that all specialists attending ASHA will be able to volunteer by signing up for one or two hours. If you haven't already done so, please consider teaming with your colleague(s) and registering for a time slot or two! Thanks in advance for helping to spread the word about board certification! See you at Booth 1449 (one aisle over from the ASHA Store and close to the Certification Lounge)!!
