 OUR MISSION

The Mission of MeOTA is to promote the profession of Occupational Therapy and support all Occupational Therapy practitioners in the State of Maine.


The Vision of MeOTA. MeOTA will be a thriving network of collaborative members who advocate for, volunteer, lead,
and protect the practice of Occupational Therapy in the state of Maine.

 

Welcome to the Maine Occupational Therapy Association!

 

The Maine Occupational Therapy Association is actively working to advance the profession of Occupational Therapy in Maine, and help to protect OT from external threats. Imagine what would happen if reimbursement for our services disappeared. Or, if other healthcare professionals began doing the work OT practitioners are highly qualified to perform? Or, if the profession was locked out of practicing in health and wellness or any emerging practice area where clients can benefit from OT?
As professionals we have an obligation to lifelong learning. Participating and supporting our professional organizations is a basic responsibility to ensure that we are prepared to provide the best care for our clients and to ensure that OT remains a strong, viable profession for those who will need our services in the future. Your membership to the Maine OT Association supports the following efforts:
  • Funding for a lobbyist to monitor and assist with legislative efforts in Augusta, ensuring Occupational Therapy is included and represented in key legislation
  • Opportunities for continuing education, including 2 one-day conferences a year. Most recently, these conferences have focused on the pediatric practice, and the neurologically impaired patient. We are in the process of planning for upcoming conferences on assistive technology and geriatrics.
  • Providing opportunities for networking with other OT professionals through regional workshops
  • Creating opportunities for leadership development

Please take a moment to consider renewing your MeOTA membership, or becoming a member of MeOTA for the first time. Membership is $50 for Occupational Therapists, $45 for Occupational Therapy Assistants, and $20 for Students. In other words, for around ten cents, or less, a day, you can support these efforts and ensure that OT continues to be represented and preserved in Maine.

Thank you for your time and support!
