STATEMENT BY THE PRESIDENT

The Occupational Therapy Leaders and Legacies Society (OTLLS), with membership comprising over 100 respected leaders from the occupational therapy profession, has a mission to support, promote, sustain, and enrich the profession of occupational therapy through a variety of projects led and implemented by members. Since its official incorporation in 2017, OTLLS has mounted productive and important initiatives to preserve occupational therapy history, establish a national honor society for Occupational Therapy Assistants, and establish a foundation to fund scholarships and other initiatives to advance the profession.

OTTLS encourages its members to engage as individuals in non-OTLLS endeavors that they believe sustain and advance occupational therapy. It recognizes that some of these endeavors involve advocacy for various causes. As an independent membership organization, OTLLS does not take official positions on matters concerning the governance and leadership of other occupational therapy organizations. Although it respects the rights of its individual members to express their particular points of view, it insists that they do as individuals, taking care to clarify that they do not represent the official views of the OTLLS organization or speak on behalf of other members. References to OTLLS in public communications expressing collective points of view, the use of its logo, or its membership lists is unauthorized unless expressly approved by the board (and membership, as applicable) of OTLLS.
