About the Education Institution Membership (EIM)Student with Backpack

Students attending a recognized post-secondary education institution offering courses in Therapeutic Recreation (TR) may be eligible for a free student membership with TRO! If your school is not on our list of current Education Institution Members, please contact your educator(s) to inquire if they are planning to purchase this membership prior to purchasing your individual student membership.

TRO is a professional association which exists in order to guide, support, educate and advocate for its members and provides direction for the advancement of this young profession. We recognize that students are the future of the TR profession and we want their voices to be heard! The EIM provides an opportunity for all TR students (and one faculty) to experience the benefits of their professional membership association at no cost to them. Educators, please visit our Education Institution Membership webpage for details about purchasing.

Student Benefits of the EIM

TR students have access to the same benefits of a professional membership (excluding voting) without experiencing the fees. Don't miss out! If your school has purchased this opportunity for you, please see the activation instructions below.
