APTA appreciates and depends on faculty of PT and PTA academic programs to encourage students to join and renew membership in their professional association. To help you in this important effort, we've compiled a toolkit with the resources APTA traditionally has sent individually to faculty either in print or digitally, plus new tools we will add as they're developed. We hope you find them helpful as you promote APTA membership to your students!
If you have any questions, want to receive printed membership materials, or have success stories to share about getting your students involved with APTA, please contact Membership Development.
Thanks for all you do for the future of physical therapy!
Download and personalize these faculty-to-student and student-to-student templates, and send to your students either to directly encourage membership or to have student "ambassadors" share with their classmates.
Download and use these PDFs as ads to post in electronically and print or post for your office or classroom.
