Mission Statement

The mission of OTAO is to support our members and strengthen the occupational therapy profession through advocacy, education, and networking.


OTAO values its members. We value creating a strong community for practitioners to come together and grow. We value providing education to support competent practitioners. We value our members’ ability to effect change in the occupational therapy community.

Members Matter

OTAO is a member-driven organization. There are opportunities for every interest from promoting OT, to working on legislation, research, or planning quality education at the local level.
