Welcome to the Occupational Therapy Association of Oregon!

OTAO is a member-driven 501(c)6, non-profit organization.  We go back to 1947!  The original constitution for OTAO was approved on June 25, 1947, with AOTA approving this during their annual conference in October, 1947. OTAO pushed for State Licensure, with Governor Bob Straub signing our licensure law on July 27, 1977.
The mission of OTAO is to support our members and strengthen the occupational therapy profession through advocacy, education, and networking.
Supporting our organization, in doing this is our Board, SIS Liaisons/Groups, Regions/Regional Directors, Standing Committees (Legislative, Continuing Education, Marketing, and Membership), our lobbyist, Student & Faculty Representatives from Pacific University and Linn-Benton Community College, our dedicated volunteers (retirees, students, task force chairs/committees), and especially appreciated, our members. 
“Start by doing what is necessary, then what is possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible.”
- St. Francis of Assisi
