The mission of the Oklahoma Occupational Therapy Association is to advance the distinct value of occupational therapy by coordinating and promoting excellence in practice, legislative advocacy, public awareness, and provision of membership resources.
OKOTA Director-at-Large, Susan Tucker, is Running for Treasurer of the American Occupational Therapy Association for 2017!
A Message From Susan:
Hello friends! What a great time to be a member of the profession! The next three to five years are critical for the Association as we realize the AOTA Centennial Vision and look to the future in Vision 2025. The Association leadership is in a unique position to impact the profession by guiding the exciting process of celebrating the 100th anniversary of occupational therapy and aligning the Association's goals and objectives to guide the membership in realizing the promise and potential of Vision 2025. A priority is to build AOTA membership as there is tremendous power in unity. Membership connects all of us - practitioners, educators, scientists, and students - so that our efforts are aligned and therefore powerful. AOTA membership dues provide the revenue base for the marketing expertise we need to create public understanding of occupational therapy and its distinct value, and AOTA membership dues provide the necessary funding for advocacy and research.
It has been my privilege to serve in various positions for AOTA and I am passionate about continuing my service at this exhilarating time in our profession. I am enthusiastic, organized, attentive to detail, creative, team oriented, and committed, and I would be honored to serve as Treasurer of the American Occupational Therapy Association.
Watch for my blogs on OT Connections (aota.org) about my experience and qualities to carry out the key functions of the office of Treasurer and follow me on TWITTER @OTSusanT. The election will be conducted online beginning on January 10, 2017 and will conclude on January 31, 2017. Thank you in advance for your vote!
