    Date:

    Thursday, May 9th

    Advocacy: 

    Current proposed bills of high importance to LOTA as well as spreading awareness of the importance of occupational therapy

    OT impacts everyday living for so many of our legislators' voters - we want to help make that connection when speaking with them. You can check our advocacy page as it gets closer to May 9th to stay up-to-date on bills relevant to OT. 

    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!

    Location: 

    Rotunda of the State Capital in downtown Baton Rouge

    Look for the LOTA sign right after you get through the front doors. We'll be on the House side of the Rotunda - you can't miss us!

    Time: 

    To be determined, but typically mid-day to mid-afternoon

    The exact time-frame depends on the times of the scheduled legislative sessions for the day and not usually determined until day before or morning of. Mid-day to mid-afternoon is usually when we catch our legislators. Elise and Danielle typically arrive for 10:30am to begin setting up for the day. You're more than welcome to join at this time if you'd like.

    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: 

    Casual business attire

    Your work uniform is also appropriate.

    Parking:

    Nearby public parking lots

    There are several around - if you have parking trouble, there are usually several staff members outside available to answer questions.

    Registration:

    Encouraged, but NOT required

    Perks of registering: we'll know to look for you, plus you'll get reminder emails as it gets closer.

    You can contact Elise, Legislative Chair, at elisekelone@yahoo.com with questions.
