The ATRA Student Development Committee (SDC) is a growing committee comprised of students and professionals who are tasked with encouraging student membership and engagement in ATRA (ATRA, 2017). The committee has some exciting plans for 2018 and are looking for new members who are enthusiastic and dedicated in helping grow student membership and engagement in ATRA!
