Occupational Therapy Forums
Occupational Therapy Forums are local groups of OT practitioners that come together for the purpose to networking and education. While FOTA does what it can to support local Forums, Forums are not governed by FOTA. Forums should have their own officers and methods of operations. Local forums can be as few and as informal or as many and as formal as the local group would like. The structure is up to you. Because of this structure, local forums tend to come and go.
