My name is Jeanette Koski and I am the President of the Utah Occupational Therapy Association. I am very excited about the things that the association is doing and what is happening in the world of OT right now. I wanted to extend my thanks to the outgoing President, Sarah Grant and the outgoing Secretary, Gabe Byers. Both have served in their positions for two years and in that time the membership has increased, the number of educational offerings has increased and they were able to fill all the vacancies on the board and committees. I hope to continue the tradition of energy and effort that has happened over the past few years.
Another major thing that the association has contributed to is the passing of our new licensure act in Utah. There are some big changes in the practice act that will really improve the quality of our services in this state. Additionally we have updated our website and will be adding more member resources and providing more opportunities for members to network and grow professionally. I would like to thank all of our members, committees, and executive board members for supporting the OT profession in Utah.
