2020 Election

Announcing the Results of the 2020 NMOTA Election

On behalf of the Board of the New Mexico Occupational Therapy Association, I would like to thank members who participated in our recent election that ended on September 19, 2020 at 5 PM. NMOTA members in good standing were solicited to vote via e-mail and voting was conducted electronically. Open positions for this election were President and Treasurer, with the current President and Treasurer the only nominees for the respective positions. Consistent with NMOTA bylaws, no officer shall be eligible to serve more than two consecutive terms in the same office unless no successor has been elected or appointed.

Out of 207 NMOTA members who were eligible to vote, 31 members (15%) cast votes for each open position. Consistent with NMOTA bylaws, all voters were verified as current NMOTA members by the membership committee.

As NMOTA nominating chair, I am pleased to share with you the election results:
