APTA has been built—one member at a time—into an inclusive and impactful community of over 100,000 members who support APTA's mission of building a community that advances the profession of physical therapy to improve the health of society. APTA's new member referral campaign, ONE by ONE allows you to play an active role in building APTA's membership, and earn rewards for doing so.
- Any current active APTA members are eligible to participate as a recruiter and eligible to win a ONE by ONE incentive prize.
- Only 1 APTA member may receive credit for a new member. A new member recruited through the ONE by ONE campaign may only list 1 recruiting member.
- Program directors, faculty, or instructors are not eligible to receive ONE by ONE incentive prizes for recruiting students from their institution (they may recruit other faculty, others physical therapists and physical therapist assistants, and qualify as a recruiting member).
How to Participate
To receive credit for each new or reinstated member recruited, online and paper applications must reference the email address affiliated with the recruiting member's APTA membership. Applications without referring the member's email cannot qualify toward an incentive drawing.
Don't know whether someone is a member or not yet? Check the APTA Member Directory. If the individual does not appear in the directory, and meets membership criteria, they are eligible to be recruited.
Once a new member is on board, they are now also eligible to recruit others ONE by ONE and can be entered into drawings, so recruit early and often!
- Recruit at least 1 new member and be entered into a drawing for 1 free year of APTA membership. There will be 1 drawing each month for 1 year.
- Successfully recruit 1 new or reinstated member to automatically be entered into the monthly drawing.
- For each member you successfully recruit, you get 1 entry into the monthly drawing. All of an individual's entries will stay in the drawing month-to-month, unless drawn as a winner.
- Earn a bonus entry to the monthly drawing when a member you recruit also joins a section.
- The free membership year award granted to an eligible winner is not transferrable.
- Recruit 5 or more new members and be entered to win 1 of 5 iPads: Successfully recruit 5+ new or reinstated members and be entered to win 1 of 5 iPads at the end of the ONE by ONE campaign.
- Recruiter of the Year prize: The 3 recruiting members who successfully recruit the most individuals by the end of the campaign will receive complimentary registration to an APTA meeting within the next year + 1 free year of membership. In the case of a tie, the winner will be randomly selected in a drawing fashion.
- Recruit to win yourself and recruit to win your state: When you recruit a member who lives in your state or joins a section you belong to, that chapter and that section also win! The participating chapter and the participating section with the largest year-over-year growth percentage during ONE by ONE will also win a prize.
- New members recruited via ONE by ONE are also entered into a separate monthly drawing for an APTA Passport to Learning (and can begin recruiting other new members for the incentives above as soon as membership is activated).
