ASHA established the year 2003 as a Focused Initiative for reimbursement. Much has been achieved during 2003 and will be described in this article. ASHA has continued the Focused Initiative for 2004. This year should see the state speech-language-hearing associations using the materials developed last year to actively advocate for reimbursement change. An example of state association activity in the area of reimbursement is the Florida Association of Speech Language Pathology and Audiology (FLASHA). We are, respectively, the vice president of FLASHA for governmental education and the vice president of FLASHA for public relations and resource development. Considering the task of educating the FLASHA members in advocacy and reimbursement issues, it is natural that the two of us join forces. We have been working to prepare the FLASHA membership to assume an active advocacy role for reimbursement change. The following article describes the steps taken, with the hope that these can serve as a model for other state and local associations.
