This page contains general information for the OTOA Regional Representative
The mission of the Regional Representative is to further the goals & objectives of the OTOA.
The annual training conference is the mechanism that the OTOA will utilize to market the value of the association and membership.
The annual training conference will include a one- year OTOA membership with every conference registration.
The year round OTOA member benefit will include OTOA member pricing for non-conference training events.
Example: The annual conference at $299.99 will include the OTOA membership valued at $30.00.
Training events throughout the year (non-conference training) will be adveraised with "OTOA Member" and "Non OTOA Member" pricing.
The non member pricing will be a standard $100 increase from the member pricing.
Example #1: John Doe is a current OTOA member and the course will be $79.00
Example #2: John Doe is NOT an OTOA member and the course will cost him $179.00. John Doe can purchase a membership for $30 and the OTOA member price of $79.00 will be available to him. This course will cost him $109.00 although he will now be able to obtain OTOA member pricing as long as his membership is current.
Example #3: John Doe is not an OTOA member and elects to no become a member. John will pay $179.00 for the training course.
