Welcome to the Alaska Chapter of the Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing!  We are a growing community of parents of children who are deaf and hard of hearing, individuals who are deaf and hard of hearing, and the professionals who support them. 

Our programming for 2019 has changed. We are devoting this year to outreach and advocacy opportunities. We have board meetings once a month on a Friday from 6-8pm and they are open to all AG Bell members. Zoom is available. Please contact us if you are interested in attending either in person or via zoom. Please check our website frequently for programming updates. Also, please follow us on Facebook.

Our Mission

Working globally to ensure that people who are deaf and hard of hearing can hear and talk. 

We want all families to be informed and supported, professionals to be appropriately qualified to teach and help children with hearing loss, public policy leaders to effectively address the needs of people with hearing loss, and communities to be empowered to help their neighbors with hearing loss succeed.
