Well I just returned from the very well-attended ASHA Convention in Boston—over 13,500 people participated! There was clearly considerable interest in the presentations related to neurogenic speech and language disorders. I found myself unable to squeeze into some fairly large lecture halls because they were packed. Richard Peach’s Short Course, “Differential Diagnosis for Aphasia,” was sponsored by our division and was attended by nearly 300 participants. Overall, it certainly appeared to be a successful Convention. I hope that the meeting was profitable and enjoyable to those who attended.
We had our division Open House on Thursday, November 20th following the Convention Opening Session. It was an informal time for affiliates to talk with each other and Steering Committee members. Although there are always many competing meetings during the ASHA Convention, that time seemed to work well, so we will try to maintain this time slot for future Convention meetings. Some of the topics of discussion included specialty recognition, ideas for featured speakers at the 1998 Convention, and potential contributors to our 1998 newsletters.
