  • 2013 Post-House Packet Available Online

    A Post-House Packet containing draft final language for all motions acted on at the 2013 House of Delegates (House) in Salt Lake City is posted at the 2013 House of Delegates webpage and on the House of Delegates community.

    Official language for new and amended positions will be updated on the APTA website by September 23, in conjunction with the posting of the official House minutes to the House community archive.

    In the meantime, the position that was rescinded at the 2013 House (Direct Access and Attainment of “Physician-Status” as Applied Under the Medicare Program HOD P06-05-16-08) has been removed from the APTA website.

    A summary of the 2013 House has been prepared in Word and PowerPoint to serve as foundational elements for newsletter articles and presentations to educate members and nonmembers on the actions taken by the House. Those summary resources can be found along with other post-House content in the House community within the 2013 archive documents.

    The livestream of the entire 2013 House remains available to APTA members here.
