OTAC Special Interest Sections Are Underway

OTAC Special Interest Sections (SISs) are formed around a specific knowledge or skill area of occupational therapy, for the purpose of continuing education, professional development, and networking for members. Each SIS may also serve as a central gathering point for members to express needs and interests to the Association.

In collaboration with the Board Chair for Professional Development, each Special Interest Section develops and maintains guidelines that specify the purpose, which also supports the mission and purpose of the membership as a whole.

Free to OTAC members.
$10 for non-members
