Lobbying Efforts

A portion of membership dollars go to pay for OTAO's lobbyists, William Cross and Nicholina Terzieff,  Their contact information is:

bill@wvcross.com and niki@leadingedgepublicaffairs.com

The OTAO's Lobbyists:

  • Monitors legislation for how it will affect OT practitioners and consumers.
  • Alerts membership to important issues through communication to the OTAO board and postings on the website and newsletter.
  • Testifies on behalf of OTAO. Most of us can't drive down to Salem on a workday to testify before the legislature on a bill--the lobbyist can!
  • Works with other lobbyists and representatives from other professions to sort through complicated issues.
  • Participates in OTAO Legislative Day at the Capitol to help increase awareness of OT and facilitate direct contact with policy makers.
