Georgia Council for the Hearing Impaired, Inc.

Last night, I had the opportunity to meet the new executive director of Georgia Council for the Hearing Impaired, Inc (better known as GACHI). His name is Tom Galey, he was very much welcomed at Macon by the local people. He was witty, open and was geninuely interested in who we are and what we do in our area.

In the brief sense of what I can tell you about GACHI is that they're very much like CSD of South Dakota. Tom Galey in fact worked for CSD before coming here. He has told us that his number one priority here is not only to be advocates for us but to have us to be self-advocates. I'm very excited with what he had to share and I will be in touch with him after the holidays to volunteer to help GACHI in the areas of self-advocacy.
