Why You Should Attend AG Bell’s International Global Listening and Spoken Language Symposium
Welcome back AG Bell community! Today we are going to talk about our biggest upcoming event: AG Bell’s first Global Listening and Spoken Language Symposium, taking place on June 30th, 2019 – July 2nd, 2019 in Madrid, Spain.
If you’ve been to an AG Bell symposium before, consider this as a reminder of how you benefited from the experience. But, if you’ve never attended a symposium before and you’re a professional in the hearing loss community, here’s why you should consider making the trip.
It’s an Opportunity to Break Down Barriers
AG Bell and AG Bell International enthusiastically bring our mission of “working globally to ensure that people who are deaf and hard of hearing can hear and talk” to more children, families, and adults with hearing loss, and the professionals who serve them. This symposium is another chance to make good on that promise. We want to provide you, the professionals of an ever-evolving field, with the information and resources to be successful in your career.
We want to remove the barriers that prevent families from receiving comprehensive and accurate information about Listening and Spoken Language. We’ll do that by creating worldwide access to education and information for those in need, and the professionals that advise those individuals. The symposium is a great place to continue your LSL education in the industry, and we’ll have several workshops for you to choose from. Check out our symposium schedule to see if there’s a workshop will push your career to the next level!
It’s an Opportunity to Connect Internationally
Our first international symposium is an opportunity to meet like-minded people who share one goal: to serve the deaf and hard of hearing community. This symposium will shed light on the similarities and differences that we experience cross-culturally, and we encourage all attendees to take advantage of the diverse network of professionals in attendance. The partnerships you make at the symposium will create new perspectives and ideas, which in turn will help more people in the deaf and hard of hearing community.
It’s an Opportunity to Travel Abroad
Never been to Spain? Or do you want an excuse to go back? What’s stopping you? This is a once in a lifetime experience and we want to share it with all of you. Make a trip out of it! Once you’re in Europe, it becomes so much easier to travel around to different countries. And be sure to stay tuned for information on exclusive tours offered by AG Bell.
Our early bird registration ends on April 30th so register soon to get your planning underway.
Throughout this journey, we encourage you to share your thoughts and experiences, but most importantly, we want you to enjoy your time in beautiful Madrid. For more registration information for this year’s Global Listening and Spoken Language Symposium, please click here.
