The ASHA Panel on Audiology was established by Executive Board resolution 19–97, which read in part:
Resolved: That a blue ribbon Panel on Audiology be appointed and charged with strategic planning for the future of audiology and the development of a report outlining the critical issues facing the audiology profession over the next five years and the role of ASHA in addressing these issues on behalf of its audiology members.
Rationale. The resolution2018s Rationale statement explained the need for the creation of the Panel.
Ten years have passed since the ASHA Task Force on Audiology II provided the Association with a report that (a) identified critical issues affecting ASHA-member audiologists and (b) suggested implementation strategies. LC 19–93 requests a review of the effectiveness of the Association2018s audiology program. Formation of a blue ribbon Panel on Audiology will focus the direction the Association2018s efforts into the next millennium should take to promote the autonomous practice of audiologists and to enhance service delivery to consumers of audiology practice. Review by a diverse group of audiologists of the Task Force II recommendations and strategies as well as current surveys, reports, Association goals, objectives, and activities would provide a viable and credible process for recommending a 5-year plan for ASHA2018s audiology program.
