Welcome to the North Dakota Occupational Therapy Association (NDOTA) website! NDOTA is a membership organization that is managed by OT volunteers who have been voted onto the board. A lobbyist is funded through NDOTA to keep watch for upcoming political changes that impact OTs in North Dakota. NDOTA also provides educational opportunities at the annual conference and other continuing education activities throughout the year, and provides a means of communication between OT professionals across the state. NDOTA is eager to hear your inspiring OT-related stories (eg: new clinics with creative ways to implement OT skills, patient success stories, special community events, etc.) and ideas for making a positive impact in the local community. Please email [email protected] with any content you would like to share with your fellow North Dakota OTs!

Throughout this website there are many new and exciting key features we are excited to share with you!  Member's now have increased ability to stay connected and to communicate with each other community boards. This new website will also make registering for new memberships and special events easier to navigate.

While the new website remains a work in progress, we hope that you take the time to explore all the new features. Please be patient as we are continuously working to improve this site. We encourage you to confirm and update your profiles to ensure accuracy, even if you recently renewed. PLEASE ENSURE YOU UPDATE YOUR DEMOGRAPHICS SO THAT YOU CAN BE INFORMED OF EVENTS IN YOUR AREA, OR TOPICS SPECIFIC TO YOUR PRACTICE AREA.
