Hearing Regeneration - Wouldn't it be wonderful if our hearing got better instead of worse as we went through life? Unfortunately, we live in a noisy world and our hearing just gets worse. Loud sharp noises like rock concerts, fire crackers, guns, chainsaws all destroy hair cells which produce hearing (How Loud is Too Loud - Quicktime Movie). Once damaged, we lose our hearing and those haircells are never replaced by nature. Roughly ten percent of the U.S. population suffers from hearing loss. By the time we become senior citizens about half of us have damaged haircells and if we live long enough we will probably all have hearing problems. But, not all is lost! There is a possibility of hearing regeneration.

The Tacoma Executives Association is composed of leading non-competing businesses in the Tacoma-Pierce County area, each represented by a key executive. The sole function is to increase the sale of goods and services of its members through the exchange of business information or "leads."
Classifications are protected and competition between members is minimal. If you wish to become associated with the Executives, you will be asked to complete a formal application and submit an entrance fee. This fee will be refunded should your application be found in conflict with an existing member. Dues are payable quarterly in advance and include the luncheon fee for the regular weekly meeting.
Through well-planned, weekly luncheon meetings and special events, members become part of a close-knit organization which is focused on increasing member business volume. The T.E.A. will make available to you and your company the services and executives now associated with select member businesses. They will become your unpaid "sales force".
We meet each Wednesday and each meeting is fun and informative. We have an annual golf tournament and a fundraiser. Our fundraiser this year is Pardi Gras! which features a New Orleans Casino and Auction on the 29th of October.
