    Invitation

    Guests are always welcome. Although all are welcome, the HLAA Santa Monica Chapter primarily serves the West side of Los Angeles County. Please also join us for a social event after every meeting at one of the many restaurants and entertainment venues in downtown Santa Monica.

    Hearing Problems? Our meetings are fun, friendly, and informative. There is always time for questions (on the meeting topic or not), and for discussing your problems with other members, who often have personal experiences they will be glad to share with you.

    If you are considering buying hearing aids, our members will be pleased to discuss their experiences with different brands and dispensers. It's an excellent source of information on hearing aids and on the less expensive assistive listening devices (ALDs) that can solve difficult problems of hearing in meetings, restaurants, and other noisy places.
