American Cochlear Implant Alliance was founded by volunteers and we are grateful to everyone who have donated their time, talent and services to the establishment of our organization. At the present, the following committees are active.

We are excited to announce new opportunities to become a board member for the American Cochlear Implant Alliance (ACI Alliance). Specifically, we are seeking nominations for individuals who would have a positive impact on the organization from a leadership standpoint. That individual might be yourself or another person whom you would like to nominate. We welcome and encourage nominations from or for any individual who has relevant cochlear implant experience, including, but not limited to those who are surgeons, audiologists, speech pathologists, educators, auditory therapists, psychologists, social workers, parents or recipients.

Responsibilities of board membership include attending the annual ACI Alliance conference, in-person board meetings, conference calls, and participation on various board initiatives. All expenses associated with being on the board are the responsibility of the individual.

If you are interested or would like to nominate an individual, please fill out and return the attached nomination questionnaire no later than February 6, 2019. The Board Nominations Committee will review and discuss the nominations and select individuals to fill the board vacancies.
