AOTA Representative Assembly

What does the AOTA Representative Assembly?

The Representative Assembly (RA) is the professional policy-making body of the American Occupational Therapy Association. You can think of the RA as the “Congress” of AOTA. They are responsible for creating the standards and policy of the profession. The functions of the RA include:
  • Approving professional standards and policies that are brought forward through motions made by members of the Association
  • Charging RA officials, RA committees and commissions, and the AOTA President with specific actions or tasks related to motions adopted by the Assembly 
  • Establishing and charging ad hoc committees with specific actions or tasks based on motions adopted by the Assembly
  • Electing RA officials (Speaker, Vice Speaker, Recorder) and standing committee chairs (Agenda, Credentials Review and Accountability)
