APTA members can now access the first official packet of motions that will be considered by the 2022 APTA House of Delegates when it convenes beginning on July 30 in a virtual format and continuing August 14-15 in Washington, D.C.

Called "Packet I," the compilation contains 22 motions set to be forwarded to this year’s House of Delegates.

Motions are developed by delegates and include support statements that describe the expected outcome of the motion if adopted and how it contributes to achieving APTA’s vision. Over the coming months, delegates will ask clarifying questions of motion makers, and the language for many motions may continue to evolve even during House deliberation. Delegates then vote for or against these motions with final decisions reported via the official minutes.

Members who have feedback on House motions are encouraged to contact their component's chief delegate.

Delegates should continue using the Motion Information forum in the House of Delegates online Hub community to share information and ask clarifying questions. Chief, section, and assembly delegates wishing to cosponsor a motion or request that a motion be placed on consent should visit the House Motions, House Reports, and Additional Resources file library.

Please direct questions to governancehouse@apta.org.
