Membership Matters: The Math of APTA Membership Dues

The benefits of APTA membership are numerous. The value opportunities are countless (just ask some of our members).

But because belonging to APTA is a financial investment in your present and future, let's look at membership solely through the prism of dollars and cents.

What Does Membership Cost?

A physical therapist paying national dues, plus dues for 1 state chapter and 1 special-interest section, will spend approximately $468 a year.

That's just $39 per month! Less than $1.29 per day!

And with that investment come considerable savings.

How Can Membership Pay For Itself?

Did you know that section members can save $260 on registration fees for the profession's biggest national conference, the Combined Sections Meeting (CSM)?

Did you know that APTA members can save $160 on registration for NEXT Conference & Exposition, the association's revamped June conference?

Did you know that APTA members receive free enrollment in timely webinars, such as "The Year Ahead for Outpatient PT: Payment Policies in 2014," "Implementing ICD-10 Diagnostic Codes," and "Health Care Reform: 2014 Progress Report," that go for $169 each to nonmembers?

Combining just a few of the above significant discounts and free offerings can eliminate the cost of membership altogether!

What Else Do Members Receive?

Membership provides numerous benefits, including access to publications such as the journal PTJ, PT in Motion magazine, the weekly e-news blast, and the seminal Guide to Physical Therapist Practice; the PTNow clinician portal providing evidence-based resources, including access to clinical and academic publications via ArticleSearch; the MPPR and Fee Schedule Calculators; and countless other online members-only resources!

What Does Membership Pay For?

Membership is responsible for 41 cents of every APTA revenue dollar, and those funds support numerous initiatives—none of them possible without member support.
