In recognition of the 2017 Centennial celebration, OOTA is including ALL Ohio OT/OTA licensees on action alert updates regarding legislative efforts impacting OT practice in Ohio.
Representatives from OOTA met with Representative Keith Faber and other interested parties on Tuesday, March 7th to discuss the HB 49 language. On March 8th OOTA representatives testified in the hearing before the House Finance State Government and Agency Review Subcommittee (Chaired by Rep. Keith Faber).
Please continue to write, call, and email your legislators to express your concerns over the potential negative impact this legislation could have on OT practice in Ohio. Although Representative Faber appeared sympathetic to the concerns of OOTA and other impacted professional organizations, we will need to continue to communicate with individual legislators to ensure our voices are heard across the House.
The 2017 OOTA Conference, "Celebrate 100 Years of Occupational Therapy," will be held November 3-4 with preconference on November 2. This year the West Central District will plan and host the event at the University of Dayton Marriott, 1414 S. Patterson Blvd. Dayton, OH 45409.
Exhibit opportunities, handbook advertising and sponsorships are available: 2017
