NMOTA Annual Conference

Save The Date!
September 7 - 8 2018 


Hello NMOTA, 

Your new conference committee is planning for the 2018 conference, held on September 7-8 in Albuquerque (so please save the date and attend!!).

Our theme is this year is “Beyond the Centennial: Build your skills and expand your horizons”. We are interested in hosting a conference that is relevant to your needs and desires.

Please take a few minutes to take this survey and help us create a conference that is appropriate to your needs.


A total of 13 CEUs will be available if you attend the Breakfast with a Scholar session on September 8th.  And plans are in the works to offer video CEU opportunities throughout the year for those who cannot attend.


Need more information? Please contact the Conference Committee -- Email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.


This year's conference will continue building on NMOTAs commitment to build a network of occupational therapy connections, people power, and outreach from border to border. WE are your PEOPLE!

The Request for Proposals will be Announced in March 2018

Please consider presenting at conference, celebrating our centennial, and planning the future of occupational therapy in New Mexico!

Some important things to think about:

NMOTA represents Your Profession in the State of New Mexico. Offering opportunities to accumulate educational credits toward licence renewal is not our only purpose. As a membership based organization, engaging both members and students in the legislative process, and affecting positive change across the spectrum of diverse opinions and biases within the bodies that regulate our practice, are two of the most important reasons that organizations like NMOTA exist.

Over the last three years annual memberships have increased by 150%, and conference attendence has significantly increased every single year since 2010, however, every year, we also drop nearly 50 students and more than 120 licensed practitioners from the membership roles. We've somehow been able to absorb those losses, and Still Grow Stronger, but we could be stronger still.

Between July 1st and the end of September, over 230 NMOTA members are up for renewal. Many of those joined during conference last last year and, because they do not attend in 2018, may forget to renew. 

So we're putting out a call to all licensed New Mexico OT and OTA practitioners.

If you are one of the 1500 OT Practitioners and Students who will receive an Invitation to Attend the 2018 Conference, but cannot attend, or do not wish to participate next year, Become a Member Anyway, it's important.

If you attended Conference in 2017 and became a NMOTA Member, but are unable to attend in 2018, remember that your memberships expire in July and August this year. We encourage you to renew and continue to add your voice to the effort to Promote and Protect the Profession of Occupational Therapy.
