COTAD is a 100% volunteer led and operated 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We can provide training materials, virtual and in-person events, and scholarships thanks to generous donations from our supporters, institutions, and members. However, as our reach expands and our programs grow, we will need more people and more funding to achieve our goals.
To this end, we are launching a new, affordable membership program that will allow us to provide consistent, high-quality programs and continue to reach more people around the world so that clients of diverse abilities and backgrounds will receive culturally appropriate care from culturally humble OT practitioners.
Join a community of occupational therapy practitioners, educators, researchers, and students looking to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion by signing up for COTAD membership. Member benefits include:
Access to COTAD educational and training materials
Networking and social interaction opportunities
Early-bird access to register for COTAD events
