AOTA’s Annual Conference & Expo is the one place where occupational therapy pros (and soon-to-be pros) gather together every year. If you’ve attended before, or if this is your first time, here are the top 5 reasons for you to join us this April:
When you walk into the Baltimore Convention Center and open your Program Guide, you will see an incredible array of learning before you. Doors will be wide open for advanced practice, professional growth, licensure renewal, and NBCOT PDU recertification in more than 900 sessions.
You will have the unique opportunity to hear from AOTA’s President, Virginia (Ginny) Stoffel, PhD, OT, BCMH, FAOTA, sharing her in-depth knowledge, passionate concern, and reflective visions of the future for occupational therapy. You will experience true guidance and inspiration at the 2014 Presidential Address.
In their own words, here is why nearly 100% of your colleagues recommend that you attend Conference: it is wonderful to “be surrounded by thousands who love the profession;” “have a family reunion with old friends and meet virtual friends in person;” “meet awesome vendors in the Expo;” and “come together to rejuvenate the spirit.
Each day you spend at Conference will be educational and exciting! On Thursday evening, Conference goes live with an invigorating and entertaining Welcome Ceremony, Keynote Address, and Expo Grand Opening & Reception—and that’s just the beginning. Special events throughout Conference include the Eleanor Clarke Slagle Lecture, Plenary Session, Special Interest Section Roundtables, International Breakfast, Tech Day, and Fitness Sessions, just to name a few!
Baltimore is a colorful and diverse city where you can enjoy its beautiful Inner Harbor, fascinating National Aquarium and Maryland Science Center, historic Fort McHenry, unique museums, great chefs and cuisine, and so much more! Read more about this here.
Expect the Best!
