FRIENDS OF THE ASSOCIATION— In addition to being featured at the annual conference, our sponsors get listed for a full year on the AREA web page. The price has not changed and remains at $250. New sponsors (aka: Friends of the Association) are encouraged to participate. Sponsorship of AREA webinars are now an option as well and are available for a significantly reduced rate.

There are other marketing options as well, both on the AREA web page and in our newsletter. An example of our need is to revamp our website. Please contact Bob Paré (rpare@consultativerehab.com) for more information. We extend a big thank-you to all sponsors for your invaluable contribution to AREA.

CE CREDITS UPDATES— Due to cancellation of the 2020 conference, the Board has extended the time frame in which CEA credit must be completed for one year from its original date.
