OATA Volunteer/Committee Opportunities

Volunteers are ALWAYS welcome!!  We are always looking for committee members to help with OATA initiatives.  If you are a member of OATA or just interested in learning more about art therapy and getting involved with the Association contact 

We are actively seeking professional or registered members for:

  • Education Committee

Next year is a Conference year so potential volunteers with the Education Committee may have the opportunity to help with planning and facilitating the Conference. 

OATA Board Opportunities
