About the council

The Council is composed of:

  • One physician licensed in Oregon by the Oregon Medical Board who is certified in otolaryngology (an ear, nose and throat specialist, or ENT).
  • One member who holds a clinical certification in audiology with the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association and is a member in good standing with that association as well as licensed as an audiologist in Oregon by the Board of Examiners for Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology.
  • Four individuals who are licensed by HLO to dispense, or sell, hearing aids under Oregon Revised Statutes (ORS) Chapter 694.015 to 694.170.
  • One public member who is a consumer of hearing aids and does not possess the professional qualifications of the other members.
