The following position papers and presentations will help you become more familiar with the top legislative priority issues facing our profession, as well as provide you with downloadable slides for use during the forum presentations.

APTA has provided position papers for the three issues we will be lobbying on at the Federal Advocacy Forum. Position papers state APTA's position on, and provide background information for, each issue. Position papers will be available at the forum, but feel free to review these papers beforehand.
