“Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” - Your Important Role as a Member of OTAC

Posted: July 25, 2018

Abstract: The Occupational Therapy Association of Colorado is looking for your help to re-energize our social media platform by highlighting some of the dedicated efforts that are occurring in the field across the state.  What will be your contribution to our diverse community?

“...Think about those who have helped you become who you are today. Some of them may be here right now. Some may be far away…. But wherever they are, if they’ve loved you, and encouraged you, and wanted what was best in life for you, they’re right inside yourself” -Fred Rogers (Dartmouth Office of Communications, 2018).

Call for Recognition of Outstanding Occupational Therapy Practitioners

Posted: July 24, 2018

We work alongside incredible colleagues and friends. Now is the time to recognize that special colleague who “goes the extra mile,” or goes above the call of duty when serving not only the people in their care, but also, being an incredible part of the team and valuable community member.   Several of our colleagues are engaged in amazing, innovative work and may be too humble to stand in the spotlight. Why not recognize his or her contributions to the profession? We give so much of ourselves in serving others -- let’s take the time to recognize a stellar colleague for the difference they make. There is something special about being recognized for a job-well done outside of our work settings, and nominating an outstanding occupational therapy practitioner is a great way to promote pride in the profession.

This year, OTAC is seeking nominations for the awards below:

  • Marjorie Ball Award of Merit

  • Agatha Jackson COTA Award of Excellence

  • Dottie Davis Service Awards

  • OT-OTA Partnership Award

  • Recognition Awards

For more info on each award and to nominate a colleague or friend, click here.
