MSHA Membership

Membership in the Minnesota Speech-Language-Hearing Association provides a number of benefits.

Membership is open to individuals in the field of speech-language pathology and audiology. For an explanation of membership categories, please refer to the member types listed below. MSHA reviews all applications for membership and reserves the right to deny membership to those individuals who do not meet the criteria for membership as specified in the membership requirements.

MSHA offers a rolling membership, meaning your membership begins on the date your application is approved and payment is processed, and extends for one year. Dues may be deductible as membership in a professional association on your income tax forms. Consult your tax advisor for more information. To receive member rates for an event, you must first become a member, and then register for the event(s). These will be two separate transactions.
