He is comfortable hearing in meetings, social gatherings, at work, in the car and even on the phone. It was not always this easy for Wayne to hear. But, his 30-year involvement with HLAA gave him the support he needed and kept him at the cutting-edge of all new technology that might help him hear better. An accountant, Wayne served two three-year terms on the HLAA Board of Trustees—one of them as treasurer. He is currently on the Finance Committee. He was a leader in the Cochlear Implant Association Inc. (CIAI) until 2003 when CIAI was integrated into HLAA. In his home state of New Jersey, Wayne worked in chapter development and is a stakeholder in the HLAA New Jersey State Association. But these are not the only ways that Wayne gives back. He also gives annually through the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) charitable payroll deduction plan. “Since I am a federal employee it is the right thing to do. Employee participation in the CFC program helps the office ‘look good.’ Annually, I can increase the amount given since we generally receive a cost of living increase each year. I have found it the best way to donate without having to worry about having the money available monthly. Since I have been participating in the CFC campaign, HLAA has always been the organization of choice for me, and I encourage other employees to join me in making their donation to HLAA.” Wayne encourages all federal employees to give to HLAA through the CFC. It’s easy and the right thing to do. Designate #11376 for Hearing Loss Association of America® Combined Federal Campaign It’s easy and the right thing to do. 36 Hearing Loss Magazine http://http:// http://hlaachapternews.blogspot.com http://www.hearingloss.org http://www.loss.org
