In celebration of recreation therapy month, URTA is excited to announce our first ever “Recreation Therapy Day on the Hill”. We are shouting out to all licensed recreation therapy professionals to join us Monday February 22, to go to Capitol Hill and meet with our legislators to educate them about the importance of Recreation Therapy.
8am: We will first meet at UNI (501 Chipeta Way, Salt Lake City). Park behind the building on the eastside and meet by the ropes course. A small breakfast will be provided and we will and learn “how” to talk to your legislator and “what” to say.
10am: We will car pool to the Utah State Capitol to represent URTA and the therapeutic recreation profession to as many senators/representatives as we can. We will wrap up with lunch at the Capitol and should be finished by 2pm.
If you have any URTA shirts please wear them, if not just wear something bright so that we stand out in the crowd.
If you have any questions, please contact Amy Stoeger at amy(at)trconnections(dot)com or call (801) 792-8932.
