Arkansas Hands and Voices News

Dear Arkansas Hands & Voices,

Recently the Arkansas Hands & Voices Board of Directors had the opportunity for a weekend long training with the Executive Director of Hands & Voices Headquarters, Janet DesGeorges, and H&V HQ board member Helen Leiser. It was a great meeting that provided wonderful training for our group and our board came away re-energized and ready to continue strengthening our Arkansas Hands & Voices chapter. One of the ways we want to do that is to provide opportunities for people to learn more about what H&V represents.  

We want to invite everyone to come next Thursday, May 16th at 4:30 pm to learn more about one of the core values of H&V - "Supporting Families without Bias." We will be showing a captioned training video by Janet DesGeorges that will help us learn more about what that means. This meeting will be from 4:30 pm - 5:45 pm at the UALR Speech and Hearing Clinic. There will be no childcare or dinner provided. There will be ASL interpreters there for the meeting.

A second action item that came out of our training is that we voted to hire a Chapter Coordinator for our chapter. Our board is VERY excited about this decision. The position will start July 1, 2013. The job description is attached. Interested applicants should submit cover letter and resume by June 1, 2013 to -

Thanks for all that you do to make Arkansas Hands & Voices a great group supporting all families who have children who are deaf or hard of hearing!
