Location: Indiana, United States

I became a Professor Emeritus after serving 29 years as a recreational therapy faculty member at Indiana University. I'm a long-time Hoosier, having grown up in Hanover, Indiana. My RT practitioner work was in psych/mental health. After completing my Ph.D. at the University of Illinois, my first faculty position was at the University of North Texas. RT has been a wonderful profession for me as I have had the opportunity to serve as an author and national leader.

The NCTRC Board of Directors conducted its annual meeting on April 24-25, 2008 in Newburgh, NY. Among the many achievements accomplished during the two-day meeting were the following:

Three new members were inducted to the NCTRC Board of Directors. Debbie Robinson, CTRS (NH) and Nancy Richeson, CTRS (ME) were inducted for a three-year term (2008-2011). Janet Turner, CTRS (PA) was inducted as the Employer Representative to the NCTRC Board of Directors and will also serve a three-year term (2008-2011).

Jim Shea, CTRS (CT) was re-elected as Chair of the Board of Directors for the term of 2008-2009.

In a unified vote, the Board endorsed the continued exploration of Specialty Certification by NCTRC. An ad hoc Committee was established to further study the issue and report back to the Board with their recommendations by November 2008.

An ad hoc Committee was also established to investigate and develop a strategic action plan related to strengthening the eligibility requirements for NCTRC certification based upon the results of the 2007 NCTRC Job Analysis Study.

I am glad to see steps being taken to make the path more challenging! I am also glad to hear of possible specialty certification.
