2021 Cleveland Conference

 Cleveland Conference


Cleveland, CLEVEland, CLEVELAND! 


Here we come! September 11 – 14, 2021 the American Therapeutic Recreation Association Annual Conference will be at the Cleveland Downtown Westin for an in-person conference. Conference sessions will be held Saturday morning through Monday noon, allowing for travel Friday and Monday afternoon. We hope that you will plan to join us for a time to “Recharge, Reconnect and Rebound”. General sessions, educational sessions, networking, and social opportunities will be the highlights of our time together. We will follow whatever social distancing requirements that are in place at that time. Rest assured – we are planning for a safe time of reconnecting with a goal to recharge you and help you rebound after a year plus of COVID. We hope that you will plan to join us for a fabulous time in Cleveland. 


For recreational therapists who are unable to travel, we will also be hosting a virtual conference. Live general sessions and recorded educational sessions will be available from the convenience of your home or office. Attendees at the in-person conference will also have access to virtual content. 


Watch for announcements SOON on the Call for Presentations and for Registration which will open late May – early June.
