Therapeutic Recreation Section Meeting & Education: Dec 2022
IPRA's Therapeutic Recreation (TR) Section consists of special recreation professionals that either specialize or work in and around special recreation agencies. The event will begin with a light breakfast of pastries and the TR Section Board Meeting.  The Section Meeting will mainly consist of reports from the Section Board and each committee Chair, and an IPRA liaison will be in attendance to provide updates to the membership about news and events happening within the association.  Following the meeting, there will be a presentation of "The IPRA Experience", Committee updates, and Professional Development Scenarios.  If you are interested in joining the section or simply wish to attend for educational and networking purposes, you are encouraged to register. This is a members-only event, but guests interested learning more about IPRA are welcome to attend.
