Message from the President

It seems like winter is finally letting go of its clutches and allowing us to get a glimpse of warmer times. I, for one, am looking forward to campfires, BBQs and long hikes in the Edmonton river valley!

We are very excited and proud of the annual conference we have planned for you and we hope that many of you will be able to join us in Calgary on June 7th. We’ve also set a date for our next AGM/TA Awards and have a wonderful and powerful guest speaker already booked for the event.

As your Association, we are striving to maintain open and positive relationships with local and provincial stakeholders (such as employers, unions, regulatory colleges and educational institutions) that have a vested interest in the role and scope of practice of therapy assistants. We want to make sure that assistants have a voice in the province and the most effective way to do this is for you to join us! We need you to volunteer with us and share your thoughts, ideas and hopes for your profession. If you want your profession to grow and expand, you need to help it along by taking part in the different opportunities we offer like public speaking experience and leadership training.

In the spirit of Ghandi and his desire to inspire people to take responsibility for their lives and their future, I write this to you: “Be the change you want to see in the world”. Stay happy, healthy and connected!
