PURPOSE

To initiate and support research in Pennsylvania on hearing problems covering a range of research from embryonic through adult ages.

In keeping with the Lions of Pennsylvania interest in youth activities, special emphasis is encouraged on research to prevent deafness and hearing problems among our youth.

The Foundation is designed only for providing RESEARCH - not conservation or other help for the hearing impaired. Research grants are provided only for researchers within the state of Pennsylvania.

HISTORY

The Pennsylvania Lions Hearing Research Foundation was created by action of the 1978-1979 State Council. It was incorporated as a non-profit corporation on August 21, 1979. The 1979-1980 State Council appointed the first Directors to the Board, and the first Board meeting was held on January 20, 1980.

The Board of Directors consists of two (2) members from each district. The Board meets three (3) times each year, two of which are on the Saturday morning of the State Council meetings in August and October. The third meeting of the Board is held during the State Convention when grants are determined for the following year. A quorum for board meetings is determined by a majority of districts represented. There is no Board meeting during the February State Council meeting.
