  • 2012 Budget to Focus on Strategic Priorities

    The 2012 budget aims to ensure that APTA's revenue growth is reasonable, its expense structure supports the desired growth in revenue, and the overall budget is financially stable. Initiatives funded in the 2012 budget tied to the association's 8 strategic priorities include APTA's national registry, a regional payment pilot, the health services research pipeline, and various quality proposals. Projects and programs to be funded in 2012 include PTNow (clinician portal), moveforwardpt.com (consumer portal), the development of a maintenance of certification approach to recertification in specialist certification, continued growth in certification (clinical specialists, residency and fellowship programs, clinical instructors), and numerous other ongoing important programs and services.

    A new process was used in crafting APTA's budget. Earlier this year the Board of Directors identified 8 Strategic Priorities from the Strategic Plan and directed staff to create a budget that provided increased resources in order to achieve these Strategic Priorities. 

    APTA's 2012 operating budget has revenue of $39,741,614, expenses of $39,741,614, and zero net revenue.

    • I am a second year PT student at Hardin-Simmons University and I have a question. Why does APTA not sponsor more events like the MS 150? I might be mistaken and not realize how much involvment there really is, but from my experience I did not notice anything from the association. I am curious because I would like to see the profession grow even more. If we have more public awareness and eventually a larger backing at the state and national level it may improve acceptance of direct access. I may be completely off the mark on this, but I have been wondering this question for a while. Thank you for your time.
