thaaa-logoHappy New Year!

Our 9th Annual Education Day plans are underway and this year we are shaking things up a notch. We are combining the AGM/Awards night with the Education Day in hopes of saving everyone some money by avoiding travelling twice during the year and conceivably getting more people out to celebrate our professions. The AGM/Awards night will be the evening of Friday, May 13th followed by the Education Day Saturday, May 14th. It will be held in Nisku, providing you with a great opportunity to plan a weekend in Edmonton.

Be sure to save the date: May 13 & 14, 2016

We are still on the hunt for speakers for the Education Day. Please talk to or recommend anyone you know who may be willing to give a presentation and pass on the Call for Speaker form. Applications are due Jan 31, 2016.
The Award Nomination Form on our website has recently been updated. The Association must receive all nominations no later than March 31, 2016.
Just a reminder, we do have some Professional Grant money available, which members can apply for. We offer 3 grants per year. The Association must receive the application on or before the submission deadline dates. The deadlines for applications are: January 31st, May 31st and September 30th. We are accepting grant applications now for the upcoming Jan 31st, deadline. For complete details please go to: JOELLE WITHERS PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT GRANT APPLICATION
You can send completed forms through email as a scanned attachment to promotions@thaaa.ca promotions@thaaa.ca. You can also print and mail the completed form to the address below.
Stay safe and warm everyone.
