Ohio Recreational Therapy Association

Join us in celebrating International TR Month with ATRA!


February is International TR Month and ATRA is thrilled to be partnering with the Canadian Therapeutic Recreation Association (CTRA). The theme for the month will be “In This Together” and ATRA believes that partnering with CTRA is a fantastic way to demonstrate this idea. In light of the current global pandemic, there is no better time to support one another and recognize that we are all “In This Together.” This year’s International TR Month is going to be one to remember. ATRA and CTRA are In This Together!


TR Month Calendar

Below is ATRA's TR month calendar. This year, ATRA has decided to offer some different ways to engage with ATRA and your fellow RT peers. You will notice that some of their events are in partnership with CTRA. One event ATRA is really looking forward to is the Joint Townhall with CTRA: "In This Together: Navigating the Challenges of a Global Pandemic" on Tuesday February 16th at 8PM EST. On Tuesday February 23 at 8PM, Brent Wolfe, ATRA Executive Director, will host a FB Live Event with ATRA Presidents (Past, Current, and Elect), we hope you can join in to get to know some of the ATRA Board more! In addition, ATRA is pleased to offer a FREE Webinar: Sandy Negley's "What I Have Learned from COVID" from our 2021 ATRA Conference this month.
