Get Ready For A Great Time- The 2017 Annual OTAC Conference Planning Is Underway

Posted: August 15, 2017

Register today!  Use discount code "panel17" this week to receive $10 off full conference registration! 

The 2017 Annual OTAC Conference season has officially begun!  This year’s conference will take place at the Ameristar Casino and Resort in Black Hawk, Colorado on September 22nd and 23rd.  Attending conference is a fun way to learn about current trends and developments in occupational therapy, network with other occupational therapy practitioners, and spend time bonding with fellow colleagues who may provide new opportunities for growth or gently remind us of our abundant history.  Preparing for conference can be overwhelming, even for the most seasoned attendee.  Each week we will publish a “to-do” to best prepare for a successful project.

5. Complete a Wardrobe Review:  While there is not set requirement for conference attire, most people dress business casual.  Make sure that you pack a comfortable pair (or two) of shoes that your feet will love from the wee hours of the morning into the evening and that can transition with your outfits from day to night.  Do you have any occupational therapy spirit wear?  Make sure you bring it!  If not, don’t worry, we will have logo wear and signature centennial t-shirts for sale at the venue.  Lastly, plan to bring a little something dressy for our centennial celebration on Friday night!

6. Prepare Note-Taking and Networking Strategies

7. Review Continuing Education Requirements

8. Brush Up on Your Casino Games

9. Register Early

10. Join OTAC
