Board of Directors

The Western Institute for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (WIDHH) is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. WIDHH’s Board of Directors is comprised of Directors from diverse backgrounds. By law, these Directors are accountable for the oversight of WIDHH as a registered charity. Many of WIDHH’s Directors are Deaf or Hard of Hearing and bring deep personal understandings of deafness and hearing loss to their role.

To contact WIDHH’s Board of Directors, please email WIDHH’s President of the Board at
