Barbara Kelley is the executive director of the Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA). Hired by Founder Rocky Stone in 1988, Barbara has been a part of the organization’s growth, beginning with editing the first issues of the SHHH Journal until most recently the award-winning Hearing Loss Magazine, now called Hearing Life. Serving as editor for the magazine for28 years has allowed her to influence attitudes, establish lexicon, and give people credible, reliable and timely information and support, through the printed word. She has also helped manage the office team, served as deputy executive director from 2008-2016, and worked on many of the HLAA programs.
As HLAA’s chief executive officer since March 2016, Ms. Kelley is the primary spokesperson for the organization. She is responsible for overseeing the administration, programs, and strategic plan of the organization. Other key duties include fundraising, advocacy, marketing/media relations, and community outreach.
Barbara said, “It has been my life’s work to contribute to the mission of the organization. It’s been exciting to be part of an organization that has had so much influence on public policy such as passage of the landmark Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, to sponsoring the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine (NAS) report on Affordable and Accessible Hearing Health Care for Adults. Our work over the next few years will be to make sure that the recommendations set forth in the NAS report will come to fruition. I’m energized by our members who tell us that HLAA has changed their lives for the better. I am thankful to our members, volunteers in HLAA Chapters and the Walk4Hearing and our supporters who ensure the HLAA mission is fulfilled.”
