The University of Memphis's NSSLHA chapter has been running the MidSouth Conference on Communicative Disorders since 1970. The students are responsible for organizing, developing and running the conference annually. It is an excellent opportunity for them to develop their leadership and organizational skills. It also provides a diverse high quality range of CEU offerings for professionals in the region. Help us keep going through the next 50 years!

Conference Update

March 06, 2020

Thanks to everyone who has made a donation/picked up your new swag at the conference over the last day. We are almost 1/3 of the way to our goal! The 1970s are still in the lead with 55% of their goal met but the 2010s have made a strong showing at the conference and are just under 50% of the way to their fundraising goal.


We'd love to see some more participation from our 1990s alums. And of course, we still have lots of really awesome swag to give away. 

Thank you Swag! Get Yours at the Conference!

Good morning,


In order to encourage everyone this morning, we want to share the sweet CSD swag that is available as your gift when you support NSSLHA and our conference. 


At the $50 level, you have your choice of either the LIMITED EDITION 50th Mid-South stainless steel cup, or the CSD stainless steel tumbler.

At the $75 level, you can have this awesome CSD sweatshirt, which is the perfect weight for Memphis weather. 

At the $100 level, you can have the sweatshirt AND your choice of cup.


Come find us at the donation tables at the conference if you want to check it out in person.  

Thank you, donors!
