Legislative Affairs is part of the Public Affairs Committee of VOTA. Working with our lobbyist Alexander Macauley and his office we keep abreast of and advise VOTA on state and local developments pertaining to occupational therapy directly and indirectly.

The committee also advocates on relevant legislative and regulatory developments as they pertain to areas of occupational therapy and practitioners in the state of Virginia. As needed VOTA is represented at the OT Advisory Board meetings and works closely with the Board of Medicine.

Alexander Macauley, VOTA's legal counsel and lobbyist, provides free legal advice to VOTA members. He frequently assists VOTA members with a wide variety of legal matters including employment contracts, regulatory compliance, and licensure requirements. He can be reached at
