Martin, club adviser)Students from the Occupational Therapy Assistant Club attended the American Occupational Therapy Association conference in Charlotte, N.C., from April 27-30.

The students attended various workshops, short courses, poster presentations, roundtable discussions, meetings and forums. They also visited the exhibit hall featuring several hundred vendors displaying the latest in occupational therapy-related products and companies recruiting certified occupational therapy assistants for employment.

The national conference afforded the students an opportunity to learn from leaders in the OT profession and be exposed to thousands of occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants, according to Patricia J. Martin, clinical director and club adviser.

Attending the conference also gave students a chance to see firsthand what their professional association does and fostered a sense of commitment to being an active member of the association, she said.
