THE TIME IS NOW

Now is the time to help ATRA meet its mission of empowering recreational therapists - including YOU!! Empowerment is about making someone stronger and more confident in their abilities. It's also about championing their work and ensuring they have the necessary resources to be effective in all the places they seek to improve their impact.

 

It feels good to belong to something greater than yourself. To know you are influential in helping lead a movement, a shift, a change to something even better than good.

 

The time is now for you to get involved and take control of your career and your profession! ATRA is looking for individuals to assist with the implementation of ATRA 2025, our new strategic plan. Specifically, we are looking for individuals to be apart of the following teams:


ADVOCACY & LEGISLATIVE

For the Advocacy & Legislative Team, we are looking for individuals who have interest in, experience with, or a desire to learn about issues related to our advocacy and legislative issues. The goal of the Advocacy & Legislative Team is to advocate for legislative actions, policies, and regulations and partner with other advocacy groups to achieve policies that champion and support the practice of recreational therapy and the role within health and wellness models.

Board Facilitators: Kelley McCubbin

LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT

For the Leadership Development Team, we are looking for individuals who have interest in, experience with, or a desire to learn about all issues related to leadership.

MEMBERSHIP GROWTH

For the Membership Growth Team, we are looking for individuals who have interest in, experience with, or a desire to learn about all issues related to growing the membership of ATRA.
