About WVAD

The West Virginia Association of the Deaf (WVAD) was organized in 1915. It was established and incorporated in 1930 and is one of 51 affiliated state associations. WVAD recognizes ten chapters within the state and is governed by an Executive Board of Directors, who serve on a voluntary basis. Membership includes deaf, hard of hearing, and professionals who work with the deaf and hard of hearing and other interested individuals.

WVAD serves a wide array of individuals with hearing loss as an advocate as well as an information network. It hosts a State Association Biennial Conference and sends representative(s) to the National Association of the Deaf's Regional and Biennial Conferences to voice concerns gathered from the State Association Biennial Conference.
