New ACOT Staff Titles, CCP Support Series, Renewal

New ACOT Staff Titles

ACOT is pleased to announce that Alanna Ferguson has joined us permanently as our Director, Competence and Practice. Many of you will know Alanna from her role as Acting Director, Policy and Practice. She had been in this role temporarily while Angela Meneley, Director of Policy and Practice, was seconded to do ACOT’s consultation and refresh of our Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics.

Alanna’s new title reflects that she is fully immersed in ACOT’s Continuing Competence Program (CCP), CCP review and evaluations, practice visits and assisting registrants with their practice queries. Angela’s new title, Director, Regulation and Policy captures her ongoing focus on recent government bills and their impacts on the legislative, regulatory, policy and other areas affecting ACOT and OT practice in Alberta. As part of her role, Angela will continue consulting with key partners and registrants to inform how our Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics are finalized, implemented, and interpreted into practice guidance documents.

Please join us in congratulating Angela and Alanna!

Marianne Baird, CEO and Registrar
