The Benefits of Membership 

NCOTA aims to advocate, educate, and communicate.  Membership in any professional association offers you to opportunity to lend your support, as many others have done in the past, to the mission and activities of that association and to your colleagues who are already involved. In addition to what you give, members also receive a few valuable benefits.

Membership has been proven to enhance professional identity and pride. Members receive substantial discounts at continuing education events, making license renewal easier to manage, while knowing that those events are being produced specifically for you.  

Members become part of various networking resources, both locally and statewide.  Members have a voice when lawmakers are considering legislation that might impact the care OT practitioners offer or access to that care for NC citizens.

Welcome to NCOTA

The North Carolina Occupational Therapy Association was founded in 1957 and was incorporated as a nonprofit professional association in 1976.  Dedicated volunteers also led the drive for licensure in 1984.  From then until now, occupational therapy has grown from a few therapists around the state to over 5,800 licensed OT and OTA practitioners in many different specialty fields. And yet the mission continues. Providing leadership in advocacy to legislation and policy makers. Supporting continued competence of OT practice through several comprehensive educational conferences each year, from the coast to the mountains. Helping to create networking opportunities and resources for our members. We hope you will find your visit to our site useful and, if you are not a current member, that you will consider joining with us. The future is exciting and we are looking forward to enjoying it together.
