Retired Membership Category
Retired Membership allows you to continue the relationship with the profession and engage in the following benefits:
- Continued access to all membership benefits, services and SAVINGS! Consider the savings on group insurance programs - home, car, pet, dental, etc., complimentary legal advisory service (it applies to all types of legal issues), GoodLife Fitness membership discounts, the Real Estate Referral services, etc. We think you deserve a continued break on costs so let your $26 work to save you hundreds! Of course you'd still be able to participate in all OSOT activities, programs, etc. if you wish.
- Opportunity to continue to contribute! While retirement may be welcome break from the day to day demands of your job, now may be the time when you actually have time to contribute as you always wished you could. Join that task force that's working on an issue that's been important to you, sit on as OSOT Team or help to promote OT at an exhibition or conference. Voluntary of course!
- Find a way to support another OT as your experience translates into expertise and knowledge that is so valuable to share. Why not consider mentoring a newer graduate or someone moving into your area of practice. As a Retired Member you can sign up to participate in OSOT's Mentorship Program and be listed in the Find-a-Mentor online tool. Or to be less formal, you may wish to be listed in the Find-a-Colleague networking tool or join an Online Community of Practice and offer advice and support through more informal networking.
- Stay in touch! Receiving OSOT communications may just be what it takes to feel you're still connected to the community. Of course, you can also choose not to receive communications if you've decided that career related email isn't your thing anymore!
