APTA members can now access the first official packet of motions that will be considered by the 2018 APTA House of Delegates (House) when it convenes June 25-27, 2018, in Orlando, Florida.

Called "Packet 1 Preview," the compilation contains 57 motions to the 2018 House of Delegates and is provided as the official notice of all motions, including 4 bylaws amendments that are coming before the 2018 House of Delegates. On May 18, “Packet I Preview” will be replaced with a document titled “Packet I with Background Papers,” a further edited and formatted version of the preview packet that will also include background papers on various motions. The differences between the 2 packets will be editorial only, and will not affect the scope of the motions.

Proposed amendments to APTA bylaws are:

  • RC 53-18 Amend: Bylaws of the American Physical Therapy Association, Article VIII. House of Delegates, Section 3: Voting Delegates, A. Qualifications of Voting Delegates, (1) Chapter Delegates
  • RC 54-18 Amend: Bylaws of the American Physical Therapy Association, Article VIII. House of Delegates, Section 4: Nonvoting Delegates, A. Qualifications of Nonvoting Delegates, (1) Section Delegates
  • RC 55-18 Amend: Bylaws of the American Physical Therapy Association, Article VIII. House of Delegates, Section 4: Nonvoting Delegates, A. Qualifications of Nonvoting Delegates, (2) PTA Caucus Delegates
  • RC 56-18 Amend: Bylaws of the American Physical Therapy Association to Allow Sections to Vote in the House of Delegates

Delegates should continue using the Motions Discussion forum in the House of Delegates online Hub community to participate in discussion. Chief, section, and assembly delegates wishing to cosponsor a motion or request that a motion be placed on consent should visit the Motions, House Reports, and Background Papers file library.
