Elections & Bylaws Amendments

2023 Election Results are In

The Nominating Committee diligently examined and evaluated each candidate's nomination recommendation and application. The chosen candidates demonstrated exceptional knowledge, expertise, and skills through their comprehensive candidate profiles, which led to a highly competitive election. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to all members who actively participated in the voting process to select our future leaders. Additionally, we would like to commend the commendable campaign efforts exhibited by all candidates throughout this election cycle. The elected candidates will soon receive additional instructions pertaining to their roles. For those who were not elected, we strongly encourage you to explore other volunteer positions or consider running again in the upcoming year. Please join us in congratulating our new slate of leaders!

To further align with APTA national, best practices in governance, and provide better clarity, the Board of Directors reviewed bylaws and proposed bylaws amendments to the Academy membership. Physical Therapist (PT) and Physical Therapist (PTA) members have been invited to vote on the amendments during the Academy's 2023 election cycle. We are delighted to share that the Bylaws Amendments have been approved by the membership and are being processed by the American Physical Therapy Association for final approval.
