Welcome to HCOA!

We are excited to announce that Aaron Ensminger will be the new Executive Director of Hearing Charities of America (HCOA) and Sertoma Inc. Aaron is a proud native of Kansas City, Missouri, and will begin his Sertoma journey and new role on Monday, April 15, 2019.

Aaron obtained his bachelor’s degree from the University of Kansas, and his master’s degree from Lehigh University, located in Bethlehem, PA. He comes to us from the National Auctioneer Association (NAA), after serving six years as the NAA’s Director of Education. In his previous role, he was responsible for developing and promoting educational programs, both in-person and online for the auction industry.

Aaron has a strong background in communications, budgeting, membership and management. He plans to bring a diverse amount of experience, skills and knowledge to HCOA. He is particularly eager to work with a membership organization on the Sertoma side, and is also looking forward to promoting HCOA’s programs.

“I hope to bring a steady and energetic Board liaison experience and the competence and composure that come from being a Certified Association Executive with 15 years of experience,” Aaron said. “Coming from a background of professional membership associations, I’m looking forward to learning more, and how I can contribute to our success.”

When Aaron is not hard at work developing new ideas or working with board members, he can be found spending time with his wife of 14 years, Angela, and two sons, ages 8 and 10. He enjoys traveling to new places, especially the beach, and watching his children play basketball and soccer.
