Membership In ATRA


ATRA is the only national membership organization representing the interests and needs of recreational therapists. We support recreational therapists in many ways.


  • ATRA works hard to make sure recreational therapy has a seat at the table. Your support allows us to have a presence on Capitol Hill. We are the folks raising our hands and making sure lawmakers and other influential organizations see and hear us.

  • We provide learning opportunities that help you grow professionally and maintain your certification.

    • The quality of our online learning programs are top-notch. Our program is not just about getting CEUs, it's a well thought out program to help you be better at your job. 

    • Our Annual Conference is the largest gathering of recreational therapists in the country and attracts recreational therapists from nearly every state and we have a significant international presence.

  • Connect with other professionals. We have communities set up for a variety of workplace settings(older adults, schools, communities...) where you can access resources, ask questions and connect with other recreational therapists who work in your same workplace setting.

  • Get Leadership Experience. Being a member of a national organization gives you opportunities to gain leadership experience. By becoming involved on a committee or with a section, you can gain experience that can help your career.
