The last few months has been a period of ‘evolution’ for ROTOS (the evolving third part of OT-Europe). The members of the standing committee have undertaken the following activity in close collaboration with COTEC and ENOTHE:
Summer is coming and another college year came to an end. ENOTHE is flourishing and moving forward, getting ready for great things after summer vacations and so is SPOTeurope!
As you maybe already know, ENOTHE and SPOTeurope are working closely to enable and stimulate the engagement of students. At the moment we already have a lot of students involved, but to increase the connection between OT students and improve student engagement, your student opinions must be heard and represented as well!
ENOTHE is now a registered Association. ENOTHE does not employ personnel but has created Service Level Agreements with Mandy Boaz and Marta Figueiredo. From the 1 June 2018 they will provide the administration services for the ENOTHE Office.
ENOTHE President Marie-Antoinette Minis, COTEC President Stephanie Saenger and ROTOS President Esther Steultjens came together to be interviewed by the Dutch Journal of Occupational Therapy EM.
During the interview the history, present and future of the three organisations was explained and what was the influence of the European policies on national level.
The article referred to the Dutch nationality of the three presidents, which all stressed that discussions take place within the Executive Committees and Boards and decisions regarding the organisations are never taken with only the three of them.
Student Platform Occupational Therapy (SPOT) President Marlies Nijenhuis, who is also Dutch, also presented their aims.
