Do you know an OT or OTA who makes a significant difference in our profession?
Or a non-OT/OTA who has worked on behalf of our profession?
A great way to honor someone’s service is to nominate them for an award…
Each year at the OTAO Annual Conference, the Occupational Therapy Association of Oregon recognizes individuals who have contributed to the profession of occupational therapy in Oregon. This recognition is based on participation in state, national and local association activities and specific activities/accomplishments that have contributed to the advancement of occupational therapy. You can nominate throughout the calendar year a colleague for one of the OTAO awards. The final deadline is Wednesday, September 15, 2021.
A colleague’s formal recognition of a job well done is one of the greatest compliments a professional can receive.
Thank you for taking the time to nominate a deserving peer for this honor!
