Hello friends!   Just eight weeks until the voting window for the AOTA election begins, so over the next eight weeks I will be blogging about my experience and qualities to carry out the key functions of the Board Director position.

One essential function of an AOTA Board Director is to solicit input and determine the strategic direction for AOTA. I would be thrilled to work in this capacity as the efforts to promote the profession of Occupational Therapy are so important to realization of VISION 2025 which is strategically guiding our profession to 2025 and beyond. A deliberate and creative use of traditional and social media to seek input is critical; and our ability to clearly communicate our strategic direction connects all AOTA members – scientists, practitioners, educations, and students – so that our efforts are aligned and therefore powerful.

My ideas, energy, and enthusiasm will be a benefit to my service to the Board. I appreciate your support and would be honored to serve as a Board Director of the American Occupational Therapy Association. Follow me on TWITTER @OTSusanT.
