Recruit members for a chance to win prizes.

For nearly 100 years, APTA has been built one member at a time into an inclusive and impactful community of over 100,000 members.

That tradition inspired our member referral campaign, ONE by ONE, which gives you a chance to earn rewards for recruiting new members through Sept. 30.

Incentives and Prizes

  • Recruit at least one new member and be entered into monthly drawings for one free year of APTA membership (nontransferable). 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. There will be one drawing each month during the campaign. For each member you successfully recruit, you get one entry into the monthly drawing. All of an individual's entries will stay in the drawing month-to-month, unless drawn as a winner.
  • Earn a bonus entry to the monthly drawing when a member you recruit also joins a section.
  • Recruit five or more new members and be entered to win one of five iPads at the end of the campaign.
  • Recruit the most members: The top three recruiters at the end of the campaign will be named Recruiters of the Year and receive one free year of membership, plus one 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 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.)


To receive credit for each new or reinstated member you recruit, make sure the new member's online or paper application references the email address affiliated with your APTA membership. Applications without your email included cannot qualify toward an incentive drawing.

  • Any current active APTA members are eligible to participate as a recruiter and eligible to win a ONE by ONE incentive prize.
  • Only one APTA member may receive credit for a new member. A new member recruited through the ONE by ONE campaign may only list one recruiting member.
  • Program directors, faculty, or instructors are not eligible to receive ONE by ONE incentive prizes for recruiting students from their institution (they may recruit other faculty, others physical therapists and physical therapist assistants, and qualify as a recruiting member).
