Upcoming Meetings


The 2023 SAART Executive Board would like to thank everyone for your continued support and engagement with our organization. We are honored to serve San Antonio area therapists and are looking forward to our 2023 CEU presentation lineup. We are working to bring a balance to our gatherings this year, as we recognize the importance of face-to-face interactions as well as the convenience factor of virtual presentations. As we finalize details of this year’s calendar, that information will be posted on our website and social media. We are excited with the diversity of suggested topics and hope to meet the needs of our members by providing presenters which reflect emerging trends and specific areas of concern as well as training requirements of the State of Texas.
