What does the AOTA Representative Assembly do?

What does the RA do? The Representative Assembly (RA) is the professional policy-making body of the Association – the “Congress” of the AOTA. And YOU (members of the RA) are the link – to getting your constituents to act on professional issues and concerns. The functions of the RA include being responsible for policies affecting the direction of the profession; this includes:

  • Formulating, debating and voting on motions
  • Charging RA officials, RA bodies, officers of the Association, or the Board of Directors to fulfill approved motions
  • Establishing and charging ad hoc committees
  • Electing RA officials and standing committee chairs
