Welcome to ALOTA!

The Alabama Occupational Therapy Association (ALOTA) is a member organization. ALOTA is the state-based professional organization and public voice for the occupational therapy profession within Alabama. Members consist of occupational therapists, occupational therapy assistants, occupational therapy students, and corporate sponsors who employ occupational therapy personnel. ALOTA is a state affiliate of the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA), which is the national professional association. ALOTA and AOTA share the common goals of working to advance the profession of occupational therapy, the public’s awareness of and access to needed occupational therapy services, and the contributions of occupational therapy to health, wellness, productivity and quality of life.


The Benefits of Membership

Advocate – Educate – Collaborate

You insure the most valuable things in your life – things like your house and your car – why would you not insure your job? ALOTA is the only organization dedicated to be your professional advocate as an occupational therapy practitioner (and future practitioners for our students). It takes resources to do this. This is done through your membership dues and attending our continuing education offerings. We regularly offer some of the most cost efficient and highest quality continuing education in the state. But it is more than just continuing education – our events are designed to promote networking and collaboration in settings that encourage a work-play balance. Do your part. Not a member?
