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.
