Celebrate Occupational Therapy As A Profession: Part 2

Posted: June 21, 2017

This is the second part in a four-part series to celebrate occupational therapy as a profession! The past 100 years have been filled with milestones for occupational therapy. We want to continue this legacy to ensure occupational therapy continues to positively affect all individuals for years to come. So, what can you do to help OT excel for another 100 years?

  • Get involved. Connect with our Public Policy Chair, Lauren Clark. Keep an open-mind and start learning. Help OTAC’s lobbyists by attending open meetings with them to discuss and advocate for your career. If public policy isn’t of interest, consider reaching out to our Professional Development Chair, Kylie Sleeth, and offer to teach about your expertise through one of our forums across the state or even at our state conference. Share your talents. If you so desire, apply for a board position with OTAC, we’d love to have you! A surefire way to grow professional and personally while enhancing the world of OT is in leadership within the board for the association. Positions will be opening for the next term soon!

  • Celebrate! Help your colleagues to know about OT and our rich history. Host a potluck at work, post about it online, gather with OT friends for happy hour or coffee simply to celebrate our work. Let us know what you’re doing, and if you’d like, we can help spread the word! Either way, we’d love to know what you’re up to!
