I have applied for the role of a Trustee within the BSA as I feel the Society provides a vital link between the professionals working within audiology and I would like to support this role. BSA offers opportunities to bring together the intertwining strands of the scientific, technical, manufacturing, education and research communities for better outcomes.
With my past experience of working within a professional body I can fully appreciate the role BSA has in generating and disseminating opinions and best practice across the disciplines. Within my role as a clinical, practicing audiologist the work of the BSA is evident in my every day working experience; I would very much like the opportunity to contribute in enhancing practice for professionals, clients and their families.
I feel my experience in NHS practice, professional body roles and education provision will be an asset to the BSA and hope to be able to provide a positive contribution to the future of this organisation.
