  (March 20, 2012)

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 20, 2012

For seventy-five years, the Texas Occupational Therapy Association (TOTA) has been providing support and education to Occupational Therapists all over the great state of Texas through networking, face-to-face conferences and informative seminars. In the early days these events were hosted at the homes of associate members or from a local hotels banquet room; however advancements in technology have made those meeting practices a thing of the past.

Recently TOTAs training department and board of directors implemented into their business practice. As an easy-to-use, web-based video conferencing solution, has given TOTA the tools they need to connect with their membership on a whole new level, cut travel costs, increase productivity and reach out to professionals residing in underserved or remote areas of their region.

When speaking of the benefits TOTA has received since starting with web-based video conferencing, Eileen Garza, Volunteer and Coordinator of Distance Services at TOTA stated, Using has allowed us to reach out to professionals in areas that we were previously unable to reach. With we are able to encourage their participation in our professional organization and to provide them with the continuing education offerings that are necessary for professional development and licensure. Since we started using, our participation in educational sessions has immediately grown by about three-hundred percent!
The many features built into MegaMeeting.coms video conferencing product, such as high quality video, VoIP, screen sharing and the ability to show PowerPoint presentations has allowed TOTA to transform the services they provide to their members. Prior to using, face-to-face educational sessions were held at one location with around twenty-five to thirty practitioners from a specific geographic region.

In the future, TOTA hopes to record these sessions for their members to access at later dates.
