Information about the AGB biannual convention


The Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing is a nonprofit membership organization that was established in 1890 to empower people who are deaf or hard of hearing to function independently by promoting universal rights and optimal opportunities to learn to use, maintain, and improve all aspects of their verbal communications, including their abilities to speak, speechread, use residual hearing, and process both spoken and written language.

To carry out the A.G. Bell objectives, we offer a wide variety of member-oriented programs, publications, and financial aid programs. While the A.G. Bell focuses on issues of national and international scope, members can enrich their involvement by joining one of our three Sections and one of our many Chapters and international affiliates.
