AOTA Licensure Compact Town Hall Recording

As you are aware, NJOTA hosted an informational Town Hall with AOTA, NBCOT and the Licensure Compact Team.  The purpose was to inform all NJ licensees of the Licensure Compact Initiative and what our status is in NJ.  We had great attendance and appreciated all of the valuable participation and questions asked.  For those of you who were unable to participate, AOTA did record and post the meeting.  Please use this link below to access the recording.  Additional licensure compact updates can be found at  https://otcompact.org/news/

Special Interests Groups

The NJOTA special interest groups exist to help practitioners network, share information and expertise, and generally monitor best practice in particular practice areas. They are only as successful as the participants make them. Groups can be started and supported by NJOTA; just contact the Chairs of the Practice Committee.
Membership in the SIGs is a benefit of membership in NJOTA.
