Core ambassadors are the primary links between the Student Assembly Board of Directors and PT and PTA students in each state.

Core ambassadors are responsible for implementing strategies and initiatives to promote student engagement. Their goal is to create awareness of advocacy efforts at the state and national levels, and to provide students with opportunities to increase involvement within APTA.

Core ambassadors communicate and develop student initiatives with their state chapter to enhance the student experience.

Contact your core ambassador today to see how you can get involved!

Be a Core Ambassador

Core ambassadors should have the desire to get to know the DPT/PTA programs within their state, have some experience with APTA structure and events, and have strong communication skills. If you are interested in being a core ambassador in your state review the Roles and Responsibilities (.pdf) and Handbook (.pdf) then contact the Student Assembly Vice President for more information.
