At the Council Meetings in Medellin, Columbia in 2016 we got accepted by WFOT (World Federation of Occupational Therapy). It was decided that Haiti met the standards for full-membership. These standards include a national association with a constitution that met world standards as well as a university that met the minimal standards for education by the world federation. It was passed by a unanimous vote and Haiti became officially a full-member of the World Federation of Occupational Therapy.
From then on, Haiti now has a voice and vote at the table for the rest of the meetings. Consuelo Alzamora was Haiti delegate and Autumn Marshall the first alternate delegate.
