The New Mexico Occupational Therapy Association Website was originally established to provide both Guests and Professional Members with information describing the purposes, goals, and activities of the organization, and to make opportunities for professional development available to it's members.

Over time the website has evolved beyond it's origins to become New Mexico's Go-To site for everything OT.

  • We now host various resources and tools designed to assist our visitors in finding OT Practitioners, Clinics, and other Services in their community.
  • Members can share their experiences and exchange ideas with the entire membership via the Connect! New Mexico Forum.
  • Opportunities for professional development have been taken to the next level with the additions of the Career Portal, Event Calendar and Member Directory.
  • Employers and Advertisers will soon be able to access a subscription system that allows them to publish their information directly to the site (in minutes rather than weeks).
  • Authorized Members will be able to write and submit new content directly to the website. Areas will also be developed that can host Personal/Professional blogs and user contributed connections to other resources.
  • We've also developed this Handy Site Reference and User Guide to provide useful How-to information to our Members.
