We are excited about the speakers we have obtained for this year’s conference, including our Keynote, Francie Baxter, OT, PhD, FAOTA. This years theme is “ Evolving in a Changing Environment” with a variety of topics and short courses which can help you update your skills and strengthen your practice as an OT or OTA. 

We invite you to register for the conference today. The early registration deadline is September 12, 2014. Please be sure to sign up for concurrent sessions on the registration form to ensure your place. We are not able to guarantee admission to a specific session if your registration is not completed.
You will receive many benefits by participating in the conference, including:

  • A variety of topics which will enable you to choose the sessions which will meet your needs.
  • An opportunity to receive continuing education hours which are required by state licensure. The maximum amount of credit hours you can receive is 14.
  • The ability to meet therapists from different areas of the state, renew friendships, and develop informal networks.

All of this at a reasonable price and the flexibility to register for one day or the entire weekend. Did we mention we like to have fun too?
Hope to see you September 19 -21, 2014 at Georgia Regents University in Augusta, Georgia!
