The American Art Therapy Association has opened the call for nominations for the Nancy Schoebel Distinguished Legislative Award.  Nancy Schoebel was an inspiring art therapist and a vigorous supporter of art therapy at the local, state, and national levels.  This award is designed to recognize AATA members’ ongoing efforts to elevate the art therapy profession.  We know that any legislative success is thanks to the hard work and perseverance of volunteers on the ground.  Now is your chance to recognize those colleagues who are making a difference in your community by nominating them for this prestigious award!  The deadline for nominations is June 17, 2019.  Please read more about Nancy, and find the application to nominate your colleague on MyAATA.
