About the ASD
Welcome to the ASD
The membership of the Assembly of Student Delegates (ASD) is made up of the student members of AOTA. Annually, the ASD Delegate from each educational program represents the school at the ASD Pre-Conference Delegates Meetings. The ASD provides a mechanism for the expression of student concerns, and offers a means whereby students can have effective input into AOTA affairs. As a standing committee of the Representative Assembly, the ASD Steering Committee serves the ASD membership by synthesizing Delegate concerns in order to represent the student point of view to the Board of Directors, the Representative Assembly, the Commission on Practice, the Commission on Education, and all other bodies of AOTA as needed.
The mission of the Assembly of Student Delegates is to support student members of AOTA by communicating their interests and advancing their professional contributions. This Assembly upholds the AOTA mission, promotes Association membership, and provides a forum for the development of student leadership and political awareness to enhance the viability of the profession.
