Election News

(Posted 1/17/19)

Greetings from Louisiana Association for Play Therapy!

There was a technical error in the last ballot and LAPT wants to ensure the integrity of the election, so a second request to vote is being sent, with safeguards in place to ensure the accuracy of the voting.

LAPT requests your vote for President Elect. The term for the position starts at the time of announcement at the annual conference and serves two year terms as president elect (then two terms as president and two terms as past president).

You may find more information on each nominee on the LAPT website:
