OOTA East Central District Meeting Notice

 Hello friends and colleagues,

I recently agreed to take the position of East Central District Chair. As you are aware, we have not recently been active. I hope to change that so that we can have an active district, supporting OT practitioners through educational programming, networking, and mentoring. I invite you to join me for a reorganization meeting on November 12, 2019 5-7 PM. Because of the timeframe I have chosen, I will provide a dinner of taco soup. I will have both with and without meat options available.

As I believe most of you are aware, we recently started an OTA to MOT bridge program at Muskingum University. The MOT Lab space is a house, called the MOT House. The meeting will be held there so that you can see it and be able to enjoy the meeting in home-like comfort.

The house is located at 160 Lakeside Drive, New Concord Ohio

Route 83 Exit off I 70, turn toward New Concord, turn right on Main Street, Turn left into main entrance to Muskingum University, drive up the hill and at top of the hill turn right. Drive past the lake and then up the hill just past the lake. The House is just past the "Dead End" sign, with a parking lot immediately before the house.

I believe GPS will bring you to the parking lot.

 Here is our agenda:

 5-5:15 - gather and get our meal

 5:15-6:30 - Education program (1.25 contact hours of CE) Infusing Sensory Programming Into All Practice Settings

6:30-7 - Planning for future meetings and educational programs.

Please RSVP by calling 740-826-8466.

This is a service of the Ohio Occupational Therapy Association, and members can attend free. Non-members can pay $15 (cash or check st the meeting) to cover the educational session. Membership costs are as follows:

               $60   OT 

                $50  OTA 

                $40  New Practitioner (1st year of practice)

                $25  Student                                                               

I plan to have 4 meetings during 2020, so membership can save you money and provides a bounty of benefits!


 Thank you!
