Greetings from the District Executive Officer 

District II takes pride in pioneering creative initiatives to maintain and develop members’ professional excellence and competency, to support the POTA state conference, to engage in legislative advocacy, and to continue to grow our diverse membership.

Annual activities include continuing education events, involving students and clinicians in collaborative projects, supporting practitioner involvement with local universities, and linking our District initiatives with those of our State Board.

With a new term beginning for many individuals on our board, we are excited to bring innovative ideas and continue to grow as an organization. We welcome volunteers at any time! If you are interested in a more active role within the district, please contact Erika Talaga, our Membership/Nominations Chair. Any level of involvement is a great way to network, advocate, and be connected to our area and profession. Please visit our website often for updates and feel free to contact our District Board with your questions and suggestions.
