The New York City Chapter meets the third Tuesday of every month from 5:30 to 8pm in the downstairs Assembly Room of the Community Church of New York (just west of the church itself), 40 East 35th Street.

There are no chapter meetings in January, June, July or August. 


The meetings feature speakers who share knowledge and answer questions on communication strategies, advocacy, technological advances, and other means of successfully coping with hearing loss.

All meetings feature open captioning and meeting rooms are equipped with audio loops, which transmit sound directly to hearing aids and cochlear implants equipped with telecoils. An ASL interpreter is available on request with five days notice.

Meetings also offer an opportunity to socialize and learn from others who live with hearing loss.
