APTA Student Assembly - Host a National Advocacy Dinner

Signup Deadline: 02-02-2023
Starts: 02-03-2023
Ends: 02-04-2023


Host a National Advocacy Dinner in 2021 for your DPT or PTA program in the month of May. We'll launch this year's NAD month with a large virtual event on May 4 at 8:00 p.m. ET. Plan to join us for legislative updates and learn about ways you can help us engage students in APTA advocacy. 

Hosting an event first entails choosing a date and time, then building an agenda based on what's available to you technologically due to COVID-19, and safety precautions that may need to be implemented. The final step is promoting your event! 

National Advocacy Dinners are robust events for learning the top legislative issues affecting your future profession and patients, and how YOU can get involved and make a difference NOW as a student advocate. Planning a dinner offers a great chance to meet and mingle with physical therapy students, faculty, and leaders from your area. If your event must be virtual, planning a meal around your meeting can still be fun.

And we're here to help! An Advocacy Project Committee (PC) has been appointed by the Student Assembly Board of Directors to assist students with planning National Advocacy Dinners. This year's Advocacy PC Chair is Alyse Hausman, and she can be reached at aptasa.advocacy@gmail.com.

This opportunity is open only to SPT and SPTA members of APTA.

Upon applying, you will be contacted with additional information to help make your National Advocacy Dinner a success!
