Join the ONE by ONE Campaign and Grow Our Collective Voice
For nearly 100 years, APTA has been built—one member at a time—into an inclusive and impactful community of over 100,000 members who support APTA's mission of building a community that advances the profession of physical therapy to improve the health of society.
This spirit is driving APTA's new member referral campaign: ONE by ONE.
ONE by ONE lets you play an active role in building APTA's membership, and earn rewards for doing so.
How It Works
ONE by ONE runs October 1, 2019, through September 30, 2020.
Incentives and prizes
- Recruit at least 1 new member and be entered into monthly drawings for 1 free year of APTA membership. There is no limit to the number of entries you can submit, and you'll receive a bonus entry when a new member also joins a section!
- Recruit 5 or more new members and be entered to win 1 of 5 iPads at the end of the campaign.
- Recruit the most members: The top 3 recruiters at the end of the campaign will be named Recruiters of the Year and receive 1 free year of membership, plus 1 complimentary registration to an APTA meeting within the next year.
- New members recruited via ONE by ONE are entered into a separate monthly drawing for an APTA Passport to Learning—and as members they can begin recruiting other new members for the incentives above.
- Participating chapters and sections also can win when you recruit a member who lives in your state or joins a section that you belong to. The participating chapter and section with the largest year-over-year growth percentage during ONE by ONE will also win a prize. (To participate, a component agrees to waive annual dues for any winner of the monthly drawings who belongs to their chapter or section. See official rules for details.)
