CE subcommittee and Association report
The board discussed the current law and rule with regard to continuing education and the Association. Rule 025.01.a in part states that “programs or activities sponsored by the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) or the Idaho Occupational Therapy Association (IOTA) are Board approved.” The Board would like this added to its website under the frequently asked questions (FAQ) page. Ms. Jackson, IOTA, read a prepared statement regarding the practice act and the CE requirement.
Following discussion, a motion was made by Mr. Sutherin to direct counsel to move forward with this law change and remove the language “recommended by the Association" provided in Idaho Code 54–3711. Seconded by Ms. Davis Martin, motion carried.
Discussion regarding proposed rule changes is to be added as a future agenda item.
A motion is made by Ms. Davis Martin to adjourn the meeting at 2:30 PM. Seconded by Mr. Sutherin, motion carried
