Chair's Update May 2023
I hope this month’s e-Update finds you well.
We recently advertised two brand new Trustee positions as we would like to put in place two dedicated trustees to support and shape our activity for students and early career professionals, thank you to all those that made enquires and applied for the roles, we had a fantastic response! It was during our strategy evaluation meeting in the Autumn last year that these roles were first suggested among many other great suggestions from our advisors and trustees on what priorities we might want to consider as we move towards our new strategy this year. The development of the new strategy is now underway and I will keep you updated on its progress.
The March BSA Council meeting reported positively on the progress and achievements of all the groups and trustee-led workstreams. As always there is a lot of ongoing activity around BSA guidance and procedures with new documents being proposed by the The Bone Conduction & Middle Ear Devices SIG and Balance Interest Group while existing documents such Calorics and the combined C and O Vemp guidance are undergoing review, there are also documents out for your consultation so please do review them and feedback any comments. Don’t forget to look out for updates coming through from the Special Interest Groups that you have signed up to, for example the Cognition and Hearing Group now send quarterly updates to its members, so please do check your emails.
From a wider perspective the National Audiology Review in Scotland is drawing to a close, with reports and recommendations currently being finalised, this information should be available soon.
I very much look forward to seeing you at the Scientific meeting and AGM next month in Birmingham,
