It is hard to believe that NRRTS celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2022. From the vision of a few concerned stakeholders, an organization was created to provide recognition for professional suppliers. From this humble beginning, NRRTS has become a resource for education through webinars and CEU articles published in DIRECTIONS. It is important to understand what drives the need for a standard of practice and protection of the consumers who rely on services from CRT Suppliers. The impact NRRTS has had on service delivery, legislation and best practice is key to understanding the role of the CRT Supplier.

Weesie Walker is the Executive Director of NRRTS. She worked as a CRT Supplier for over 25 years. She was an early NRRTS Registrant and served on the Board of Directors for several years. She served two terms on the RESNA PSB. She has presented at ISS, Canadian Seating and Mobility Conference, MedTrade, NSM Symposium and AOTA conference.
