ACAT Chapters

Currently, we have an ACAT chapter in Tampa, Florida as well as Connecticut. At this time, our clinicians who attend ACAT virtually join via video conferencing with the Tampa chapter of ACAT. We are always looking for motivated ART clinicians who desire to start ACAT chapters in your area. We provide a manual modeled after the Tampa chapter to guide you if you desire to start your own chapter in a city near you! Being an ACAT Coordinator is a volunteer position.
