D. State Associations 

State occupational therapy associations serve to maintain an active liaison with AOTA as well as to advocate for occupational therapists and the profession within their state. Benefits of state association membership include:

• Access to the association's newsletter
• Reduced rates for state and other conferences
• Opportunity to shape the OT profession in your state
• Information resource for available jobs in the state
• Consultation services
• Opportunity to network and form professional contacts

Depending upon their state of residency or employment, students may want to consider becoming a member of the Maryland Occupational Therapy Association (MOTA), District of Columbia Occupational Therapy Association (DCOTA), or Pennsylvania Occupational Therapy Association (POTA).

Department consent is required for admission to all occupational therapy major courses.
