How Your Section Works

Each section is governed by an elected board of directors, all of whom are available to discuss issues affecting the association and the physical therapy profession. In addition to the Board of Directors, section members participate in committee and task force activities. The actions taken by the Board, committees and task forces are member-directed. The section president is responsible for governing and directing all section activities. The section delegate participates in the House of Delegates, which is the highest decision-making body of the association, and makes decisions on issues that frequently have far-reaching implications for the association and the profession. To reach the president, the section delegate, or other section officers, contact the section office listed above.
