Connecting with Others
HLAA Albuquerque Chapter Meetings are held at Los Altos Christian Church, 11900 Haines Ave NE, on the 3rd Saturday of the month, Sept.-Jun.
Socializing starts at 9:30 am;
Presentations start at 10:00.
The public is cordially invited to attend.
March and April Meetings are Canceled
Please be advised that the Hearing Loss Association of America Albuquerque Chapter has made the decision to cancel the chapter meetings scheduled to be held on Saturday March 21, and Saturday April 18. As the cautions and closures surrounding the coronavirus continue, along with the Los Altos Christian Church decision to suspend all church activities and services until the end of April, we will conform with their schedule.
We will reevaluate the status of the recommendations from the state and restrictions in place to decide what happens for May and June meetings and let everyone know. Our plan is to publish our newsletters regardless of whether we hold meetings or not.
We will reschedule the meeting we had planned for March with the speech to text apps workshop once things settle down.
Thank you for your patience and support! You are our most important asset, so please stay safe.
