Volunteering with APTA is a great way to learn, grow, and make a difference in your association. APTA offers a variety of ways to serve and make a difference for your profession.
APTA Engage, APTA's new volunteer portal, will make it easier to find opportunities to serve the association, both nationally and locally. The new engagement platform will evolve over time, including the creation of micro-volunteering opportunities for those who want to make a positive impact with a smaller time commitment.
Interested applicants for national volunteer groups should opt-in and complete a volunteer interest profile in APTA Engage to be eligible for all volunteer opportunities as they become available throughout the year.To apply for an open position, update your profile, select the opportunity you are interested in, select "Apply Now," and answer any questions to indicate how you'd be an asset to the group. Please look for announcements regarding these volunteer opportunities in PT in Motion: News, component newsletters, and other communication channels.
Board-Appointed Volunteer Groups
Board-appointed volunteer groups include committees and task forces. Committees help inform the Board of Director's decision making on strategies, priorities, and core functions. Task forces help inform the Board of Director's decision making on emerging issues and initiatives.
The Board typically seeks volunteers for committees at the beginning of the year and seeks volunteers for task forces in the fall with additional calls for volunteers as needed throughout the year.
Staff Work Groups
Staff work groups also engage in tasks and activities related to the challenges and opportunities facing the physical therapy profession. Staff work groups advise staff in association management. Work groups are selected throughout the year by staff as needs arise.
