ALDAcon | ALDA
ALDAcon is the annual convention of the Association of Late-Deafened Adults (ALDA). It is held in various cities around the country, generally rotating from the eastern section of the country to the middle of the country, to the western section of the country. ALDAcon usually begins with a Presidential reception on Wednesday evening and ends with a Farewell Brunch on Sunday morning. ALDAcon features guest speakers, workshops of interest to late-deafened adults, exhibits by vendors of products and services for people with hearing loss, the presentation of various ALDA awards to deserving individuals, the annual business meeting of ALDA, entertainment after the Friday evening banquet, and the famous Karaoke Party on Saturday evening, where everyone lets their hair down and pretends they have a “golden voice.” ALDAcon provides an opportunity for learning about the problems that late-deafened individuals face, and the strategies that they have developed to overcome the many challenges caused by their hearing loss. ALDAcon is a place to renew old friendships, to make new ones, to socialize, and to simply HAVE FUN!
