Benefits of Advocacy

Lobby Day

Members benefit from the regular advocacy work done by the OPA in raising the profile of the profession with the public, government, and relevant private interests. It represents members’ interests to governments, third party payers, other service providers, professional associations, and with the public. The stronger the collective, the more we can accomplish together.
