Membership

How does my country apply for organisational membership with the WFOT?

In the Resource Centre > Membership / Articles of Association - you will find the documents ‘Establishing an Occupational Therapy Association and applying for Membership in WFOT revised July 2016’ and the ‘WFOT Articles of Association’ which state the criteria for membership.

Once a National Association is established in the country applying for membership, a copy of the constitution of that association must be sent (preferably electronically) to the WFOT Executive Director at admin@wfot.org. The constitution will be reviewed and a recommendation put to the WFOT Council (which meets every 2 years) to accept the country applying for Membership, provided the constitution meets the requirements.

How do I apply for individual membership with the WFOT?

The current method for becoming an individual member of the WFOT is to apply through your national member association or through the national member association of the country in which you are working.  Contact details of national member associations are found in the Country Profile.

Further information can be found in the Resource Centre > Membership category or http://www.wfot.org/Membership.aspx.

I would like to be an individual member of the WFOT but there is no occupational therapist association in my country.

To become an Individual Member of the WFOT, you must apply through your national member association or through the national member association of the country in which you are working. If your country presently does not have a national member association, WFOT suggests you contact the member national associations bordering your country and enquire if you are able to join their membership. Contact details of national member associations are found in 'Country Profile'.

Further information can be found in the Resource Centre > Membership category or http://www.wfot.org/Membership.aspx.




How can I access the "Members only" area in the WFOT website?

Only individual members of the WFOT are eligible to access the "Members only". Individual members have to (once only) register through Membership > Setup your account and fill in the form with all your information provided by your national association - the WFOT membership number is your Association membership number. Then log in to the "Members only" and fill in your Username and Password that you created. You will now have access to the 'Members only' area.
