HASA Announces New Executive Director - Hearing and Speech Agency

HASA Announces New Executive Director

After an extensive search, The Hearing and Speech Agency (HASA) has selected Erin Stauder to be its next Executive Director. She will succeed Susan Glasgow, who served as director for 22 years.

Ms. Stauder will take the lead of an organization with a strong history in the Baltimore community. Founded in 1926 as a meeting place for the hard of hearing, HASA has evolved to serve the interpreting, educational and therapeutic needs of children and adults through CIRS Interpreting, Gateway School, and a clinical services program.

Since 2006, Erin has been a member of the clinical faculty at Loyola University Maryland. There she managed the clinical internship program for speech-language graduate clinicians at multiple locations in Baltimore City. Prior positions include serving as an Advanced Therapist with the University of Maryland Medical Center and also managing and providing a variety of services to young children through Easter Seals of Southeastern Pennsylvania.

Erin earned Bachelor of Arts and Master of Science degrees in Speech-Language Pathology from Loyola College Maryland and is pursuing her doctorate in public policy at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. Her colleagues describe her as a gifted leader and manager, able to make difficult decisions, yet collaborative in her leadership style. She states: "Access to language and communication has been an integral part of my educational and professional career, so I already feel connected to HASA's mission. I'm excited to work with the board and staff to continue to move the organization forward."

The board’s search committee was led by committee chair Peter Bosworth, board president Aaron Marshall and Dr. Jane R. Snider of Heads-Up Consultants. The inclusiveness of the search process and the outcome reflect the committee’s extraordinary dedication and service to HASA and its mission.
