The Joint Board members meet two times a year to discuss Joint Board issues such as finances, personnel issues, election of officers, the laws and rules, and other OTPTAT joint issues.
Each Section meets separately approximately six times a year to discuss the regulation of their respective professions.
Each Section determines their own rules and interpretations. Due to confidentiality, the complexity of issues and the interpretation of the practice acts by each Section, the staff can only give limited information over the telephone. Please submit your questions in writing and please be aware of the date of the next board meeting so the information may be submitted in a timely manner.
