Register for the 2021 SDSLHA Convention 

Thank you for your support and interest in this year's virtual convention. The Convention Committee has worked hard to provide you with many options and the ability to earn more CEUs in this virtual format. While we look forward to meeting in-person (hopefully in 2022), we are pleased with the format this year. We hope you enjoy it, too! 

The 2021 Virtual South Dakota Speech-Language-Hearing Association Annual Convention offers many opportunities for members. If you aren't a member, please consider joining us by clicking here. We'd love to have you as part of the association. We are happy to have members of all other Speech-Language-Hearing Associations join us as well and would like to extend our member rate to you.

The 2021 SDSLHA Virtual Convention is a hybrid event. We will be offering a combination of live presentations listed below at their listed time and date, as well as recorded presentations from a number of speakers. The live presentations will be recorded for viewing later.  All recorded presentations will be made available from March 5 until May 8, 2021.
