Do the hours I spend at MCSHA programs count towards ASHA Professional Development?
Yes, MCSHA program hours count towards the maintenance of your CCC, as we have followed ASHA's CE protocol. However, ASHA will not maintain them in their registry—you must keep track of them yourself. MCSHA members can expect to earn between 10 and 12 CE hours per year.
How do I report my hours to ASHA?
CE certificates are available at the conclusion of each meeting.
What is the membership fee?
If paid before September 1, 2019, MSCHA's membership fee is $75/year. If paid on September 1 or after, it is $90/year. Students with a valid college ID have a membership fee of $25/year.
What do I get for my membership fee?
The yearly membership fee provides members with four outstanding programs offering information and therapy strategies in the speech/language/hearing field and a comfortable listening/learning environment. You will receive CE certificates as proof of attendance. Coffee/tea and light refreshments are available at each meeting.
Can I bring a guest to the meeting?
Guests are always welcome, but must pay the $90 yearly membership fee to join MSCHA. This will entitle any guest to attend all meetings for that year.
Where are the meetings held?
Our meetings are held at the Alex Aidekman Family Jewish Community Campus (JCC Metrowest), 901
Route 10 East, Whippany, NJ. Parking is available in Lot C. Meeting rooms are located on the main level
of the facility.
What is the procedure upon entering the meeting room?
Sign in at the front table and record the time you arrive. Then, go directly to the back table to sign your CE certificate. Your certificate will be available at the front table at the conclusion of the meeting.
What happens if I have to leave early for an unforeseen emergency?
You will receive the certificate of participation with an adjustment of the hours.
When and how long are the meetings?
Our meetings are held on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday evenings. Programs are usually three hours, typically running from 5:45 to 9 p.m. (including a 15 minute break). Attendees may earn an additional .5 continuing education hours by attending the business meeting, which is held 30 minutes prior to the start of the program.
