|Member of the Month Highlight|
We would like to introduce you to our May Member of the Month, Bethany Foreman. Bethany was nominated by her peer, Cindy Bouillon. The Member of the Month initiative is a peer-to-peer nomination where members who have gone above and beyond in their profession and the association, will be acknowledged for their contributions. Bethany was selected as Member of the Month for her willingness to exercise her leadership skills on both a state and national level and fulfilled responsibilities beyond her regular professional duties. We had a moment to speak with Bethany and ask her what she has found most valuable about her membership within the OPTA and how other members can get more involved. Take a moment to learn more about her experience within the association.
Q: How has being a member of the OPTA helped you to grow in your profession?
A: Being a member of the OPTA has helped me grow in my profession by helping me stay up to date with evidence based practice through continuing education provided for free or at a discounted rate.
Q: What do you find most valuable about your OPTA Membership?
A: What I find most valuable about my OPTA membership is the networking. I love having contacts all over the state and in various practice settings; it is a wealth of resources! By developing relationships and connections within your network you not only have the opportunity for collaboration, but also can find more opportunities within your career. Attending events, meetings, and social gatherings is a great way to connect.
Q: How can a member become more involved with the OPTA on a state or district level?
A: To know how you can become more involved with the OPTA, contact your district representatives. They would love to help you get involved in any way you are interested.
