Mission, Goals, and Objectives.

The primary aims of the American Auditory Society are to increase knowledge and understanding of the ear, hearing and balance; disorders of the ear, hearing, and balance, and preventions of these disorders; and habilitation and rehabilitation of individuals with hearing and balance dysfunction. To attain these goals, the Society coordinates and disseminates information, particularly through the holding of regular meetings, and through publication of professional, scientific, educational, and informational media. Because of the multiple-disciplinary nature of the Society's membership, (audiology, otolaryngology, dispensing, engineering, psychoacoustics, etc.), the Society provides a formal platform for the interchange of information from allied professional fields.

The Benefits of Membership.

Members receive discounted registration rates for the AAS Annual Conference in March and a complimentary online subscription to Ear and Hearing, the bimonthly comprehensive, multi-disciplinary journal that keeps you abreast of current clinical ideas and procedures. Although the Society is based in the United States, there are no geographic limits - we welcome your involvement from anywhere in the world!
