LOTA's Legislative Day 2016 is taking place on May 3rd!
We will be speaking with our legislators about the current proposed bills of high importance to LOTA as well as spreading awareness of the importance of occupational therapy.
Even if you have absolutely no knowledge regarding the proposed bills of this legislative session, your passion for the OT profession is all you need to bring!
It's held in the Rotunda of the State Capital in downtown Baton Rouge. Look for the LOTA sign right after you get through the front doors - you can't miss us!
The exact time-frame is always determined within days of the event and depends on the times of the scheduled legislative sessions for that day. Mid-day to mid-afternoon is usually when we catch our legislators.
*Update 5/2/16: The house and senate will both be getting into their chambers for 2pm, so join us as early as 12:30! We'll be closing down around 2:30.
There is no amount of time you are required to be present - you can come just to say hello if that's all you can do! Dress-code is casual business attire, and your work uniform is also appropriate. There are nearby parking lots and usually several staff members outside available to answer questions if you're having parking trouble.
If you'd like, you can contact our Legislative Chair, Elise, at firstname.lastname@example.org and let her know that you are planning on attending. We'll know to look for you!
See you there!
