Board of Directors
The HLAA Illinois Cochlear Implant Chapter (HLAA-ICIC), a chapter of the Hearing Loss Association of
America; is an organization for cochlear implant (CI) recipients, prospective recipients, professionals,
and other interested parties. We offer information and support to help current CI users as well as to
prospective users and their families. At our meetings we offer presentations by experts such as CI
surgeons, audiologists and CI company representatives. ICIC strives to increase awareness of hearing
loss, and promote the benefits of cochlear implants. We welcome input from our members.
Although our name says Illinois, our members are predominantly from the Chicago Metro and NW
