Board Emeritus Members

The meeting to establish the Southeast Therapeutic Recreation Symposium (STRS), in its current structure, was held at the NRPA Congress in Minneapolis, MN in 1981. The first Board of Directors pledged to cover any losses resulting from the 1982 STRS so the STRS Board of Directors could offer the symposium as a continuing education opportunity in the southeast.

 The following list identifies the founding members of the STRS Board of Directors in 1981 (identified by the navy font) and those who were members at the time STRS was incorporated (identified by the asterisk *) on 12/19/1984. Those who first rotated off the STRS Board of Directors in March of 1984 are identified by the notation >.
