Advocacy At Work

 

Get Ready for Hill Day 2020!  

The Iowa Occupational Therapy Association (with our lobbyists from Advocacy Strategies, LLC) had a great group at the Hill last February talking with many legislators about issues for Iowans needing OT services.  Join us February 25th from 1:30-4:00 to advocate for clients again.  You can find your legislator here by typing in your full address.  A sample letter can be found here to use to draft your email to your legislator.  

 

Talk with Legislators: Communicating with your legislators increases their understanding of occupational therapy, ensures they understand issues that impact our profession, and provides support for our profession when IOTA seeks to support or oppose a bill. Please take time to learn who your legislators are and begin to build a partnership with them.

Use Social Media to tell your Advocacy story by connecting on Twitter @IowaOTassoc or on Facebook!
