Visioning AATA's Future: Planning Strategy for the Coming Years

  • Registration Closed

An organizations’ Strategic Plan sets the course and direction for that organization – it is an essential part of governance and impacts the way that the association works to achieve its mission and share its vision for art therapy with others. We invite AATA members to join President Dr. Margaret Carlock-Russo and President-Elect Dr. Girija Kaimal for a webinar that focuses in on AATA’s current strategic planning process, presenting a potential vision for the world that we are working toward and giving a closer look at the pillars and priorities that will guide the work that AATA accomplishes in the next few years. Not only will our speakers set the stage for what’s to come in the association, but will also provide opportunities for members to gain insight into and engage with the strategic planning process themselves.

Please email if you have any questions or want to request particular accommodations for the virtual meeting.
