Chair's Update April 2022

Dear Members,

I hope this finds you all well. I would like to begin by thanking Jackie Young and team for the recent publication of the 19th issue of the Audacity magazine, it was once again an informative and interesting read. It offers an easy way to be updated on BSA groups and activity as well as what is happening more widely in the field, including clinical developments and global activities – a great read and thank you!

The BSA Fellowship application process has just opened (29th March) for its latest round of submissions. Why not celebrate your positive contributions to the field of Audiology and have them recognised by the BSA? The application process all takes place online with a deadline of the 17th May, we look forward to receiving your applications, reading about your achievements and awarding the fellowships.

It is at this time of the year that the efforts of all our internal BSA teams summarise their annual activity for the purposes of generating the BSA annual report, this is in addition to providing their usual report to Council so I would like to thank all the groups and SIG leads that have taken the time to provide these reports. It really is a time to celebrate as we reflect on all that has been achieved over the past 12 months (despite the pandemic) and what exciting plans lay ahead. Special thanks go to Nina Swan who steps down from the Cognition and Hearing SIG and to Stuart Harris, Karen Willis, Joy Rosenburg and Veronica Roscoe who have also just finished their terms of office with PAIG. We all know that great things can be achieved through collaboration; TH SIG are working with the Online Learning Group to produce new content, both the APD SIG and EPSIG are working with the Conference Group to offer specialist events this year, and the Research Group are collaborating externally to produce what looks to be a comprehensive new research focused resource, all this and much, much more.
