This year’s conference will be November 7-8 in beautiful Fort Myers at Florida Gulf Coast University. We are excited to offer you a full range of experiences for continuing education credits. The call for papers deadline has expired, however the call for Student Poster Presentation is open until September 15. Remember, FOTA s annual conference is an excellent way to receive your continuing education credits, including the licensure mandatory courses. We do all the work for you to enter your credits to CE Broker. The annual conference is also a great way to see old friends and meet new ones, catch up on what is impacting occupational therapy in the state of Florida politically, and the latest in educational resources. Getting excited? This is the most cost effective way to obtain continuing education credits and meet with your fellow Florida occupational therapists. Together, we make a difference!
