Membership

Why should you join NSHA?

You will be part of the biggest community of Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists in Nevada.  Together, we make a difference in the lives of our clients, students, and patients.  Together, we advocate for our professions, constantly striving to improve our practice and educate Nevadans about the importance of our work.  As a NSHA member, you will receive discounted CEUs, membership incentives, as well as an online community of knowledge resources.

We are Nevada’s professional organization of speech-language pathologists and audiologists with concerns and interests similar to your own. NSHA members are employed in schools, in health care facilities, and in private practice throughout the State of Nevada. NSHA members are committed to promoting the practice of quality speech, language and hearing services for children and adults throughout the State of Nevada and to provide leadership in the issues that have an impact on our profession.

As part of our effort to go green, new membership and renewals are available here on our website. This is the preferred method of obtaining or renewing your membership. Please follow the link to the online store by clicking the link below. Once you are in the store, choose annual membership. In previous years, a membership card was mailed out recognizing your membership.  Because there was no purpose to this card and it wasted paper, money, and time to send them out, we have discontinued use of these cards.  We will send a verification e-mail indicating your payment and membership term.  You will need to print the invoice for your records.

Please Note: Membership year runs July 1st-June 30th. Dues will need to be renewed by July 1. This was decided on and voted by members so as not to coincide with ASHA and state licensing fees which are due December 31st.
