ArizOTA Membership Benefits

Legislative Advocacy

Membership dues allow ArizOTA to employ a lobbyist to influence and shape public policy surrounding the practice of occupational therapy in our state. Our members also have access to the latest legislative news and updates on a federal and state level and have opportunities to personally participate in the legislative process with events such as OT Hill Day. 

State Conferences

Members enjoy reduced rates to our Fall and Spring Conferences which feature expert speakers on a variety of topics. These 1- and 2-day conferences allow attendees to earn at least 6.5 ABOTE-approved CEUs per day.

Low Cost and Free CEUs

ArizOTA members are first to learn about and register for low- and no-cost CEU opportunities, including our monthly Journal Club and Special Interest Section events.

Special Interest Sections

Join with other OTs/OTAs who specialize in specific areas of practice. ArizOTA members can participate in any of our current SIS groups — including Neuro, Pediatrics, Vision, and Postsecondary Transition — and are also invited to establish new SIS groups to grow in other areas of practice.

Leadership Opportunities

ArizOTA is led and run by volunteers. Build our profession and enhance your resume by joining our Board of Directors, leading an SIS group, or chairing a committee.

Networking

Connect with other dedicated OT professionals in Arizona at our social and educational events.

News and Information

ArizOTA members are kept up-to-date on all matters concerning the practice of occupational therapy. Our quarterly newsletter and frequetly updated social media profiles give members access to the information they need to maximize their practice. 

Research Grants

Membership dues support research initiatives for continuous growth and development of the occupational therapy profession. 

Recognition Opportunities

Each year, ArizOTA recognizes members who demonstrate exemplary service to the association, the profession, and the community.
