Post Conference Report

Conference was a hit this year with over 1000 registrants celebrating our profession and furthering their continuing competency over two days in Santa Clara, CA.

Getting Connected Reception

It was a hit! PTs, PTAs and Students from all across California came together to "Get Connected" by meeting with District and Chapter Leadership and having a few bites to eat before heading off to Karaoke Night!

What a night! Karaoke Night was a huge success this year with many asking for a repeat next year! We saw performers from all across California including Cheryl Tibbetts, Houda Rizk, Albert Parnell and many more! Thank you to everyone for participating - we hope you had as much fun as we did!
