In 2022, NBCOT will seek candidates for two positions on the board of directors, one OTR and one COTA. The initial term for both positions is for three years, with the possibility of reappointment to a second term.

Our board of directors is responsible for establishing the strategic vision of NBCOT and promoting long-term growth and financial stability.

The candidate guidelines are as follows:

  1. Candidates must be active in good standing with NBCOT.
  2. Candidates must have at least five years of occupational therapy-related work experience.
  3. Candidates should have volunteer leadership experience.
  4. Candidates may not campaign for board positions or engage in activities specifically designed to persuade certificants to vote for them, including distributing promotional items and/or using social media to directly promote their candidacy. Discovery of such activity by NBCOT will automatically exclude the candidate from the nomination process.
  5. Potential board members should subscribe to the mission, vision, and strategic goals of NBCOT.
  6. Potential board members must adhere to the time commitment involved with serving on the board. There are three face-to-face meetings annually (held on a weekend to reduce work conflicts), one board committee meeting, and additional virtual obligations from time to time.

Are you interested in serving on the board? We encourage you to apply once the call for candidates is released. Look out for an email in late February or early March.
