Welcome to the OTAC Political Action Committee!
OTAC-PAC provides a voice for occupational therapy practitioners in the California political arena.
What Is the Political Action Committee (PAC)?
The PAC is a voluntary nonprofit committee that is not affiliated with any political party. The purpose of the PAC is to provide a voice for occupational therapy practitioners in the State of California political arena. The PAC accomplishes this purpose by providing financial support to California legislative and constitutional officeholders and candidates that benefit the public by improving and protecting issues related to occupational therapy. The PAC assists occupational therapy practitioners and others to organize themselves for more effective political action in the State of California. The Committee is staffed by volunteer OTAC members including the OTAC president, OTAC president-elect, OTAC advocacy and government affairs co-chairs, member(s)-at-large, and the PAC chair. The OTAC executive director and the PAC treasurer are also on the PAC Board of Directors.
Why Is It Important to Support the PAC?
California officeholders, candidates, and legislators respond to the needs that are brought before them. The profession of occupational therapy and current and potential clients who need occupational therapy require a voice to present concerns to California officeholders, candidates, and legislators. The PAC provides a means to let policymakers know what we do and who we serve.
Why Is this Relevant to You?
The profession of occupational therapy needs to be actively involved in the political arena to address issues related to the provision of services and clients served. The PAC provides a means to bring those concerns to the political arena, specifically to officeholders, candidates, and legislators.
