Chair's Update December 2022
I hope that this December e-bulletin finds you well and looking forward to the festive period ahead.
We have our final BSA Council meeting of the year on the 20th December 2022 where we will receive the quarterly reports from all our Special Interest and wider BSA groups and I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every volunteer (member, lead/chair and trustee) for their time, energy and dedication to the work of the BSA.
Over the course of 2022 a number of projects and plans have been developed that look to make 2023 a great year ahead for our organisation. These plans include a new strategy for the 2023-2026 period, a new BSA website, a new awards programme, our Scientific Meeting taking place on 5th and 6th June in Birmingham where we will be joined by Harvey Dillon and a research mentorship programme. This is in addition to all the projects and work of the groups such as new APD Online Learning (available now), a dedicated Balance Interest Group event (welcome to the new Chair of the Balance Interest Group, Rosie Adams) and brand-new guidance proposed by the Bone Conduction and Middle Ear Implant Group. And, of course our existing and ongoing work streams continue such as ARIG’s Sound Practice, the maintenance and development of all BSA practice guidance and recommended procedure under the newly re-formed PGG and our support of external workstreams such as the National Audiology Review for Scottish Adult and Paediatric services.
With all this in mind, it looks to be an exciting and busy 2023!!
Donna Corrigan, BSA Chair
