The group will complete its work by December 31, 2019, after which it will be sunsetted.
The Board's determined charge for the Leadership Development Task Force is to:
- Work with APTA communications team to implement communications strategies related to promoting leadership resources;
- Engage leadership programs (LAMP, ELI, ACAPT, etc) within the association and external leadership resources to make recommendations on ways APTA can partner across the organization to support leadership development initiatives for members;
- Promote best practices—including the use of APTA Engage—for chapters, sections, the Student Assembly, and councils to engage members; and,
- Provide a final report to the Board of Directors.
The Leadership Development Task Force will conduct its work with the Association Organizational Values in mind and in the context of 1) APTA's mission, vision and strategic plan, and 2) the potential for its work to have implications related to physical therapist assistants, women, diversity, and risk management.
