The online resource provides information on 41 motions, including seven proposed amendments to the APTA bylaws.

 

APTA members can now access the first official packet of motions that will be considered by the 2020 APTA House of Delegates (House) when it convenes June 1-3, 2020.

Called "Packet 1," the compilation contains 41 motions to the 2020 House of Delegates and is provided as the official notice of all motions. In May, “Packet I” will be replaced with a document titled “Packet I With Background Papers,” which will also include background papers on various motions.

There are seven bylaws amendments that are coming before the 2020 House of Delegates. These amendments are:

  • RC 1-20 Amend: Bylaws of the American Physical Therapy Association to Grant Life Members the Privilege of Serving as Delegates to the House of Delegates
  • RC 2-20 Amend: Bylaws of the American Physical Therapy Association, Article IX. Finance, Section 3: Dues
  • RC 3-20 Amend: Bylaws of the American Physical Therapy Association and Standing Rules of the American Physical Therapy Association to Change the Date That National Elected Leaders Assume Office
  • RC 4-20 Amend: Bylaws of the American Physical Therapy Association and Standing Rules of the American Physical Therapy Association to Allow a Public Member to Serve on the APTA Board of Directors
  • RC 5-20 Amend: Bylaws of the American Physical Therapy Association, Article XIV. Amendments
  • RC 6-20 Amend: Bylaws of the American Physical Therapy Association to Allow Sections to Vote in the House of Delegates
  • RC 7-20 Amend: Bylaw Amendment and Standing Rule Amendment to Restructure APTA Board of Directors by Removing the Officers of the House of Delegates

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 House of Delegates will be conducted in a virtual format over the scheduled June 1-3 dates. APTA will share additional information with delegates as it becomes available via the House of Delegates online hub.

Delegates should continue using the Motions Discussion forum in the House of Delegates online hub to participate in discussion.
