KOTA Legislative Day on the Hill

All KOTA members are invited to attend KOTA’s Legislative Day on the Hill on Tuesday, February 13. Please plan to join us between 8:30 and 9:00 a.m. in the Florentine Room located inside the Jayhawk Tower at 700 SW Jackson, Topeka, KS 66603 for a light breakfast (pastries and coffee).

Legislators have been invited, please watch for an agenda soon. KOTA Lobbyists will introduce us to the legislative process with a presentation entitled "I’m Just a Bill" with examples of how it has been relevant to our profession. A presentation will also be given by the Kansas Board of Healing Arts. At 11:30 a.m. the group is scheduled to depart for the Capitol to meet with Legislators.

We have a great day planned! Students can learn about obtaining licensure, while occupational therapy practitioners have the opportunity to share information about OT with legislators at a designated table in the Capitol. All OT participants are welcome to attend general Statehouse sessions, take a tour of the Capitol, and visit the offices of legislators. A boxed lunch will be provided. We look forward to continued involvement from students and faculty, and also welcome OT practitioners who want to learn more about the legislative process. This is a great networking opportunity for attendees to meet other practitioners from across the state!

  • RSVP by February 7 to reserve your spot.
  • Questions can be emailed to Andrea or by calling 877-904-0529
  • We look forward to seeing you February 13 in Topeka!
