A New Year – A New Adventure

What an exciting time to be a TA.  A Therapy Assistant’s job is continuously evolving and growing.  Where, oh where, will it take us next?

Our 11th Annual Education Day planning is underway!

Save the Date: Friday, April 20th, 2018

Location: Radisson Hotel & Conference Centre

                        6620 36th ST NE, Calgary, AB

We ask that you spread the word that we are searching for speakers and award nominations to make our Education Day in 2018 another growing success with our updated “Call for Speakers” and “Award Nomination” links for you to share.

We are in a bit of a time crunch and still in need of speakers.  The deadline to get speaker applications in has been extended to February 9th.

From all of us on the Executive Board and all our Committee Members, we hope you have a fantastic year of successes and growth!

Lisa Reid, President

Therapy Assistant Association of Alberta
