October 1st, 2018 is AOTA's Annual Hill Day. Have you considered attending an AOTA Hill Day but then decided against it? Have you thought about taking your advocacy to the next level but didn't know how? This is your opportunity to take action and speak to your members of Congress about issues that matter to you! Click here to register for the AOTA's 2018 Hill Day As an occupational therapy practitioner or student, you are in the best position to advocate for your profession, your clients, and your future. Your legislators want to hear from you. Speak to your representatives and ask them to fully represent you. Tell your story and raise your voice to protect and defend occupational therapy. Together we can ensure that the distinct value of occupational therapy is recognized and represented in Congress.
Please note, schools and programs will still be limited to 20 students each. For more information, please go to http://www.aota.org/Conference-Events/Hill-Day/Registration-Policy.aspx.
AOTA will give you detailed materials to prepare you for your visits in the weeks before Capitol Hill Day. You will attend one of two orientation sessions held in the beautiful Columbus Room at Union Station, which will include a review of the legislative issues, tips for the day and a chance for Q&A. Then you will meet with your U.S. Representative and Senators, or their staff, at meetings arranged for you by AOTA. Register and join us for a day of advocating for the profession! More information on Hill Day and what is happening in Congress is available on the AOTA Hill Day page and the AOTA Legislative Action Center.
If you have any questions, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope you see you in October!
P.S. If you can't participate in Capitol Hill Day in person, please support your colleagues by participating in our Virtual Hill Day on October 1st, by taking a few minutes to visit the Legislative Action Center and write your Members of Congress.
