OT24Vx2012 planning underway!

OT24Vx2012 planning underway!

This year World OT Day falls on a Saturday!  This presents a new and interesting challenge for us as we have not yet run the event on a weekend.  We have been wondering if it will help or hinder attendance to have OT24Vx on the weekend, somehow, I think it will help as participants will be able to log in and out at their leisure, not when they are between appointments.

We have started brainstorming our next theme and will reveal our final decision after our first planning meeting in early May.  The theme will again be broad and inclusive.  Susan and I have been trawling the AOTA conference for potential speakers and Susan will also be on the look out at the upcoming CAOT conference in June.  The UK duo Sarah and Angela will no doubt have the British conference covered and Merrolee will be down under searching for gems to share again this coming October.  We’d love to have speakers form Europe,Africa, Southern and Central America and Asia, so if you have a speaker suggestion or marketing idea please send us an email at otforot@gmail.com.

Looking forward to sharing the OT Spirit with you all again on World OT Day 2012.


  1. Yay!! Can’t wait! I’m so happy it’s on a weekend so I can stay up and watch them all!!! I’d love to hear a Kawa update from Michael Iwama, and some sensory stuff from Tina Champagne or Winnie Dunn or the like :-) and of coarse something from our wonderful OT4OT ladies :-)

    Great to hear the planning is underway. The COTEC european conference in May (Stockholm, Sweden) will also be a good opportunity to uncover themes and interesting speakers.

      Thanks Sarah, will you be at that conference?

    • Anita Hamilton

      Please let us know who you uncover :)

  3. Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using? I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

      Hi Nabhendu, this blog uses WordPress.com We found WordPress to be more flexible than other platforms. It also can be a bit stubborn at times too! All the best with your blog!

      Cheers, Anita

    Good luck with your events in the future
