URGENT ACTION NEEDED: Membership Renewal

Hel­lo IOTA cur­rent and for­mer members, 

Unfor­tu­nate­ly, there has been a tech­ni­cal dif­fi­cul­ty in our new web­site that has result­ed in our sys­tem not warn­ing mem­bers their mem­ber­ship is expir­ing. Please renew your mem­ber­ship here: https://​www​.iowaot​.org/join

This tech­ni­cal dif­fi­cul­ty in com­bi­na­tion with IOTA waiv­ing mem­ber­ship fees dur­ing COVID, IOTA funds are in a dire state of need replen­ish­ing. Your mem­ber­ship dues and dona­tions allow IOTA to con­tin­ue to advo­cate for occu­pa­tion­al ther­a­py includ­ing reim­burse­ment, employ­ment and scope of prac­tice. A few high­lights of 2022:

  • Occu­pa­tion­al ther­a­pists are now able to indi­cate need for a hand­i­cap permit. 
  • Meet­ing with the Iowa Med­ic­aid Direc­tor to high­light recent changes to the autho­riza­tion and review process­es cre­at­ing dif­fi­cul­ty in access­ing OT services. 
  • Iowa joined the OT licen­sure compact.
  • East­er Lake Park ren­o­va­tions under­way with input from local occu­pa­tion­al ther­a­py providers. The park will become one of the most acces­si­ble parks in the nation. 

      Please mark your cal­en­dars now for IOTA Hill Day Feb­ru­ary 1, 2023 at 1pm. Our lob­by­ist will have talk­ing points pre­pared to dis­cuss with your rep­re­sen­ta­tives. This is a great oppor­tu­ni­ty to get involved and advo­cate for our profession.
