About the Education Institution Membership (EIM)
Are you a recognized post-secondary education institution offering courses in Therapeutic Recreation (TR)? If so, the EIM will be a significant benefit for your students giving them an advantage in this competitive economy.
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 your students are the future of the TR profession and we want their voices to be heard! The EIM provides an opportunity for all of your TR students (and one faculty) to experience the benefits of their professional membership association at no cost to them.
Benefits of the EIM:
TR students will have access to the same benefits of a professional membership (excluding voting) without experiencing the fees.
- Transition Discount -Upon graduation, your students will be eligible for a Transition Year 50% discount on their first Professional/Registered Professional Membership with TRO!
- FREE Journal -NEW for the 2015-2016 school year, each education institution who purchases a membership with TRO will receive one hard copy of the latest TRPR -Journal of TRO
- Networking -As a student, it is invaluable to have the opportunity to network with over 1300 members through conferences, social media and the province-wide TR Awareness Month party. TR is a relatively small field, and professional networking often helps students obtain their first TR job upon graduation.
- Searchable TRO Membership Directory -Students find this useful when they start looking for preceptors for their essential internships/placements.
- Updates -In this young profession, changes happen quickly; therefore it is critical that students considering a career in TR stay up-to-date with TRO about recent developments in their field of choice through our TRO Blog, Student Centre, e-TRO, and social media including Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest.
The cost for the EIM is $300 for a one-year membership which runs from September 1st to August 31st of the school year for which it was purchased.
