Licensure Compact Agreement
VOTA hosted a Town Hall a few weeks ago on whether or not we will move forward with lobbying efforts (to include a bill proposal) to take part as one of ten states for the licensure compact agreement. The VOTA Board will be holding a special vote this week on whether to move forward. This does have a financial impact on the association, so please watch the recorded town hall meeting and submit your comments or questions to any board member or to the VOTA office. Board member contact information can be found on our website here.
The VOTA office can be emailed at: email@example.com We will only be taking questions and comments from VOTA members, so if you have feedback and are not yet a member, please join the association. This vote will affect you!
This is a time sensitive topic due to the legislative session, so the vote will be completed by the board at the end of the week. We do want to hear from you, so please consider taking a few minutes to share your thoughts with the board.

NEW VOTA LOGO
The objective of creating a new Logo for VOTA was to create a simple and eye catching logo that would link to our profession and our state. We have chosen the bold colors to reflect the recent AOTA logo change of bolder colors and the heart within the O to connect to the motto of Virginia, "Virginia is for Lovers." We have included a tagline underneath to highlight the VOTA Values which were established last year.
