It is that time of year, membership renewals are due for the 2017 – 2018 membership year. Currently, the online form submission is under repair, as we have been getting upgrades to our server and software.  The printable version of the forms can be submitted via email or Canada Post, payment is still available with the PayPal button on the right side of our web page or by sending a cheque.  Renewals and New Memberships will be accepted at the Education Day on May 5th, we will have forms available.  There will also be several chances to win free Membership throughout the day!

The Association board does have positions that need to be filled.  We are currently looking for members to step into the role of Registrar, Treasurer and Secretary.  PLEASE nominate someone or submit your name for one of these positions.  Our current Treasurer and Secretary have served the board since 2012, despite how wonderful they have been, it is time they have a break.  We only ask for a 2 year commitment in any position and would prefer the Treasurer position be someone in Edmonton.  Benefits include but are not limited to: Free ThAAA Conference attendance or other possible PD opportunities and Free membership after serving the board for one year.  Contact me for more information lisar@thaaa.ca

Just a reminder: We do have Professional Grant money available which ThAAA members can apply for.  We offer 3 grants of up to $150 each per year. The Association must receive the application on or before the submission deadline dates, which are: January 31st, May 31st and September 30th. We are accepting grant applications now for the upcoming May 31st, deadline. For complete details please see the link below:

We would like to remind you that keeping the Association running and growing is easier to do when we have members willing to help. We are still in search of an Edmonton member willing to take over as Treasurer and members throughout the province to join the Promotions Committee. If you are willing to volunteer 2-10 hours per month and want to know more about these positions please email therapyassistantaa@gmail.com.

Make sure you check our website often for updates on Events, Employment Opportunities and other TA activities happening in the province. If you have an upcoming event, job vacancy or activity, we would be happy to post these for free as a benefit to our members. Email your information to therapyassistantaa@gmail.com.

Do you have something you’d like to share with other TA’s in the province, be it a presentation, article or therapy activity? We would be glad to help share your insights through email, webinars and on our website or Facebook page.
