The 2014 Presidential Address delivered at the AOTA Annual Conference and Expo in Baltimore, MD by Dr. Virginia "Ginny" Stoffel.
Occupational therapy is poised to open new doors to persons, communities, and organizations seeking the outcomes that we deliver: health, well-being, and active participation in everyday life. In her presidential address, Dr. Stoffel will reflect on the importance of building capacity of all occupational therapy practitioners, OT and OTA students, and educators, researchers, administrators and leaders, and the organizations with whom they affiliate. In building on all aspects of the AOTA Centennial Vision, an attitude of confidence, collaboration, and passion generates spirited leadership that will fuel our efforts. Occupational therapy leaders (remember “every member a leader”) who tap into their own authenticity use core values and genuine talents to contribute uniquely to our profession. If we hope to fully achieve the Centennial Vision, active engagement of all AOTA members will move us to action, taking strategic steps to move boldly into our shared future.
