Enjoy - and let us know how else we may help your career growth...
Our Mission Statement: We are a non-profit organization for the growth and education of Activity Professionals. Since aging issues and conditions have no geographic boundaries, social levels, or ecomonic limitations neither should the knowledge that the Activity Professional can offer to all in need of these practices and positive outcomes.
As an organization, we have enjoyed tremendous growth and will be expanding our services and offerings. We have changed our name from Oregon Activity Professionals and Oregon Dementia Professionals to the Organization of Activity and Dementia Professionals and have added the International Geriatric Society of Activity Professionals title to all our by-laws and website information.
We are now offering standards and classes for the International Gerontological Society of Activity Professionals. This will include all our past avenues of services to the Activity and Dementia Professions, and add a component to help and encourage activity and dementia training/education to a worldwide scope.
The need for professional activity and dementia vocations is a human need and a global need. It affects all peoples and locations, we are proud to be a part of this growth because what you do matters.
