Audiological Resource Association
"Supporting Audiologist in Private Practice"
The Audiological Resource Association began in 1975 as a small group of audiologists in private practice meeting to discuss common problems and needs. These meetings were deemed necessary because state and national associations had become so large and broad in scope that they could not reasonably be expected to solve the problems or to meet the needs of the audiologist in private practice.
Realizing that other audiologists in private practice in the same geographic region had similar problems and common needs, a decision was made to formally organize the Association. Other audiologists were invited to an organizational meeting, officers were elected, by-laws adopted, and a charter was granted February 1976 by the State of Tennessee.
Over the years, members have found comradeship through sharing of successes and problems. Biannual conferences are planned for February and July of each year. Meetings address a wide range of topics, with a special focus on the audiologist in private practice. Current issues and topics of interest include practice management, marketing, billing/coding and third-party reimbursement, HIPAA compliance, professional ethics, hearing aid technology, diagnostic audiology, and hearing conservation.
