Dear fellow Rec Therapist:
Are you an ATRA Member?
ATRA has asked members to “show the love” and nominate people and organizations for the 2016 annual awards.
There is an “Excellence in Education” award.
I feel that my online continuing education program, DannyPettry.com would be a great nomination (see information below)
I’m boldly asking my fellow ATRA friends to nominate my program for this award.
Please send a quick reply and let me know if you’re an ATRA member who might be interested in nominating my program for this award.
I'd appreciate it a lot.
P.s. I beleive I am a very humble individual. One who often lacks the interpersonal effectivness skills to be assertive and ask for things I want. I thouhgt I'd go for it and ask you.
