Upcoming District Meetings
District meetings are scheduled for the third Tuesday of every other odd-numbered month, starting in January, from 6:30 to 8:00 pm. Meetings are not held in the months of November and December. Members are invited and encouraged to attend the annual TOTA Mountain Central Conference each November. Registration for non-member therapists is $20 and $10 for students to attend the meetings. A one-to-two hour continuing education course will be offered at each date, after a meeting and dinner provided by a sponsor.

NEW LOCATION

Please park in the designated Staff Parking area so as to leave the spaces out front for visitors. Meeting will be held in the Outpatient Therapy room.
Stay tuned for possible addition of a south Austin virtual meeting site.

We are experimenting with offering longer CEU courses, please note new times.

Please refer to our calendar of events listed below for a complete listing of our district gatherings. The latest TOTA board meeting information is shared by the chair, licensure and rules updates are discussed as necessary. Chances to share about employment opportunities and other networking prospects take place at each meeting, and the most current issues affecting our great profession are discussed. A 1-2 hour presentation follows, from 7-8pm, after which attendees receive a one-to-two hour continuing education credit.

Please feel free to contact Leslie Smart, district chair, at 512-302-3243 for further information. TOTA membership applications will be available at all meetings for all non-members or those in need of membership renewal.
