Frequently Asked Questions
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.
How do I report my hours to ASHA?
Our executive board has created a Certification Maintenance Form with all of the pertinent reporting information, including our ASHA approved number. This form is available for members to pick up at the end of each meeting with their CE certificates and is a way for members to keep a record of their hours in the event they are audited by ASHA. It is the member's responsibility to fill out a form after each program.
What is the membership fee?
MSCHA's membership fee is $50/year.
What do I get for my membership fee?
The yearly membership fee provides you with five 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, e-newsletters featuring the latest Association news, coffee/tea, and light refreshments.
Can I bring a guest to the meeting?
Guests are always welcome, but must pay the $50 yearly membership fee to join MSCHA. This will entitle him or her 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.
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 two or three hours, with two-hour programs typically running from 6 to 8 p.m. and three-hour programs 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.
