Tim Wolf, OTD '07, MSCI, OTR/L, Wins AOTA Director Position
Tim Wolf, OTD, MSCI, OTR/L, Assistant Professor of Occupational Therapy and Neurology with the Program in Occupational Therapy at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, won a Director position on the Board of Directors for AOTA when elections closed! He will assume office July 2013. Thank you to all who voted, and please join us in congratulating Tim!
His position statement below briefly highlights why he decided to run for the position:
Over the next 3-5 years there are three primary objectives that the Association must address. First, AOTA must strive for greater alignment between the organizational bodies within AOTA around the achievement of the Centennial Vision priorities and strategic plan. As a member of the two AOTA ad hoc committees that reviewed the organization, its bodies, and procedures, it was very clear that our activities are not all synergistically aligned around the Vision’s priorities and strategic plan. Greater alignment will allow us to respond more proactively to solidify our role in changing models of healthcare. Second, AOTA must strive to continue to support the evidence-base of our profession including active efforts to build our capacity to produce evidence. Third, AOTA must strive to continue to build leadership capacity within our profession. Providing individuals with a roadmap to build their leadership capacity can have a direct impact on our ability to advocate at a local, state, and national level that we need if we want to have the power to influence the health care community. As my biography and CV will reflect, my training as a scientist and volunteer work within AOTA have prepared me to help the profession meet these objectives.
