Our chapter is 100% volunteer based with most of our Board members and committee chairs navigating  full time jobs and other personal commitments so any assistance is always welcomed and appreciated.  There are a number of ways that you can participate in and support your local art therapy association, including its outreach efforts, special programs, networking events, and scholarships. Contact us TODAY at or complete our Volunteer Registration Form and someone will follow up with you.
