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.
Volunteer Interest Pool
Interested applicants for national volunteer groups should complete the volunteer interest profile to be eligible for all volunteer opportunities as they become available throughout the year. Please look for announcements regarding these volunteer opportunities in PT in Motion: News, component newsletters, and other communication channels. To apply for an open position, update your profile, select "Apply for Current Vacancies," and answer questions to indicate how you'd be an asset to the group.
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.
Volunteer Work Groups
Volunteer work groups also engage in tasks and activities related to the challenges and opportunities facing the physical therapy profession. Volunteer groups are work groups that advise staff in association management. Work groups are selected throughout the year by staff as needs arise.
