About

MOTA's Mission is to enhance the professional development of its members, promote the profession of occupational therapy, and advocate for the provision of occupational therapy services across all practice areas, populations, and geographic location

MOTA is a member-driven organization. Membership and participation are voluntary and essential to the ongoing success of the organization. MOTA seeks to be responsive to the professional, educational, communicative, and political needs of its members.

HISTORY OF MOTA
The Minnesota Occupational Therapy Association (MOTA) was established in 1922 at Glen Lake Sanatorium with a membership of ten to fifteen occupational therapists. Its purpose then, as well as today, was to promote the practice, education, and research within the profession of occupational therapy. Initially, MOTA was instrumental in the development of the occupational therapy curriculum at the University of Minnesota. Since then the involvement and scope of interest have grown tremendously. Today, the issues which concern the membership include reimbursement of occupational therapy services, legislation, credentialing, research, and continuing education.

MOTA serves as a liaison between therapists in Minnesota and the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA). The relationship is maintained primarily in two ways:

1) through representatives elected by the AOTA membership within Minnesota and

2) through MOTA's President's participation in the Committee of Affiliated State Association Presidents (ASAP).

In addition, MOTA represents the profession of occupational therapy with other professions, medical facilities, and social, industrial, and governmental agencies in Minnesota.
