NEXT Conference & Exposition Overview

  • Say goodbye to "Annual Conference and Exposition." Say hello to NEXT!

    Starting in 2014, APTA's annual June conference will have a new name and a new attitude.

    It's a name change, but it's more than that it's commitment to making APTA's June conference about looking into the future of physical therapy.

    "NEXT" isn't an abbreviation, but it does stand for something: It's a name thematic of where this conference and the profession are headed.

    Like all those "PT" conferences before it, NEXT will continue to offer the visionary McMillan and Maley lectures and the lively Oxford Debate. It will still provide an intimacy to networking that can be a challenge at CSM. It will still occur immediately following APTA's House of Delegates. And it will look to build on the energy of 2013's opening event.

    But NEXT will also be a conference that evolves over time, in exciting and engaging fashion.

    This is your chance to be there for the start of it all! Plan to join us June 11-14, 2014, for the first NEXT conference in Charlotte, North Carolina.

    NEXT is worth up to 2.1 CEUs (21 contact hours).
