                I would like to take this time to update all of you on the happenings of VASTRA.  As many of you know VASTRA was incorporated in June 2012.  Since that time we have had 2 very successful conferences and are planning our third May 17-19, 2015 at Longwood University.  We continue to have board meetings every quarter, either face to face or by conference calls.  Anyone Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend them.  Some of the topics that we discuss are licensure for the state of Virginia, conferences and how to increase our membership so we can have a stronger voice in the state.    Without your membership and your involvement in VASTRA, Recreation Therapy cannot have a strong voice in what happens in our state.  We are still looking for a president elect, a treasurer, secretary and four members at large.  These people will begin their two year term starting in May of 2015.   Please consider accepting one of these positions.   If you cannot accept a position, at least join become a member and get involved in some way.  We have waited a long time to get a Recreation Therapy organization going again in the state and thanks to a great deal of hard work we have one up and running.  Let’s not drop the ball and together make VASTRA strong and (working for the good of Recreation Therapy).  Remember, without you being part of VASTRA, there is no VASTRA and no voice for Recreation Therapy.

Thank you,

Chip Shefelton
