As we enter the New Year, we’ve already seen so much advice on New Year Resolutions: exercising, recycling, reducing plastic use, and more. In fact, New Year Resolutions have been offered for centuries.
Resolutions can also be applied to advance your career, reach professional milestones, or expand your knowledge base. At AATA, our goal is to support our members throughout their career journey.
Here are 6 suggestions to help inspire your work and advance your career.
By Carolyn Brown Treadon, Ph.D., ATR-BC, ATCS, 2023 Conference Chair
The 2023 AATA Conference Call for Proposals will be opening soon and all are encouraged to consider submitting a proposal. The Conference will be held Oct. 25-29 in San Diego, Ca.
We will also need volunteers to serve as Program Reviewers. Are you an AATA Member with an ATR-BC? We need voices that represent our membership and profession. Reviewers are essential in determining the sessions offered at our annual conference. Once the call ends, proposals will be sent out for blind review. Three ATR-BCs review and rate each submission. The time commitment, on average, will be less than 5 hours. I have volunteered for the last 12 years and learn so much each year through this process.
Interested in participating? Just email Terri Cochran in the AATA National Office at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you to those who have already volunteered! I look forward to working with you!
"I work mostly with people with mental health conditions in a variety of settings. Right now [I am] primarily working with people with neurological disorders (chronic and progressive illness). I am amazed by the resilience of the people I work with."
