COVID-19 Update and Resources

MOTA recognizes the impact from the COVID-19 pandemic on occupational therapy practitioners, educators and students as we adapt to these uncertain times. Occupational Therapy practitioners across the state of Maryland have all been challenged to remain healthy and ensure safe practices to prevent further community spread. Please visit the MOTA Blog for the resources we have compiled for you.


Occupational Therapy Licensure Compact

The OT Compact will allow licensed OTs and OTAs to practice in all states that join the compact. Please see our Advocacy page for details about what the compact is–and ways YOU can support this effort.

Calling All New & Lapsed Members

To celebrate Occupational Therapy Month this April, we are inviting all new & lapsed members to join MOTA at a discounted rate.

$55 for OTs
$45 for OTAs
$25 for retired OT professionals
$20 for students

Why join MOTA?

– MOTA’s primary expense is our lobbying team, which reviews all legislation to identify potential impact on our practice and clients in Maryland. Did you know Maryland is often considered at the forefront of pro-OT legislation, including this year’s OT Interstate Licensure Compact bill? This fact is directly tied to our very active Advocacy Committee and our lobbyists, Public Policy Partners. Thanks to YOUR membership dues, we can afford this essential service.

– Your Maryland Occupational Therapy Association membership provides you with CEUs at our frequent Hot Topic events and allows you to network with other occupational therapists in the state. 

– MOTA efforts benefit all occupational therapy professionals in Maryland. However, less than 10% are paid MOTA members! Please support your profession through your membership.

At the guidance of AOTA’s research, we are offering single-year, automatically renewed memberships (with the exception of students). This model makes maintaining your membership easier for you and the organization. Each year, you will be notified ahead of time so that you can opt-out or update your card information. It’s never been easier to become a member and stay a member of the Maryland Occupational Therapy Association.

Don’t wait! This discounted membership rate is only good for the month of April. 

New & lapsed OTs and OTAs should use this coupon code to save $10: otmonthsave10

New & lapsed retired professionals and students should use this coupon code to save $5: otmonthsave5

And don’t forget, MOTA has a Hot Topic event on April 7th for Evaluation and Treatment of Common Elbow, Wrist, and Hand Conditions that is FREE for members. You can join MOTA and register for this event today for a savings of as much as $20!

If you have any questions, please feel free to email our VP of Membership, Nicole Powels.
