Welcome to OTA Central!


Greetings from the OTA At Large 


I look forward to connecting with fellow OTAs and other members of POTA. One of my personal goals is to increase the membership of the OTA community in our organization. I encourage all OTAs to recognize their individual strengths and to use them to seek out other opportunities for personal and professional growth. This is especially important, as we anticipate continuing competency requirements for OTAs.

If you know a colleague who is not currently involved in POTA, invite him or her to the next POTA meeting or event, You will not only gain satisfaction from involving new practitioners into our organization thereby strengthening it, you will also start them on their own path of professional and personal growth.
