What Attendees Have to Say

"The involvement of physical therapists at the grassroots level will remain a vital part of our successes, and frankly, our losses. Many physical therapists have developed close ties to their elected Assembly Members and Senators, but we need more.
CPTA staff, specifically Tameka Island, and our firm stand ready to assist you in that endeavor. If you would like our help in prioritizing your local outreach efforts, setting meetings, finding speakers, or looking for creative ways that PTs can participate, let us know!"
   - Carl London, CPTA Lobbyist

Interested in Federal Advocacy?

The 2020 Federal Advocacy Forum will be held Sunday, March 29, through Tuesday, March 31 at the JW Marriott in Washington, DC.

The Forum brings together members, numerous speakers from the field, and stakeholders to discuss regulatory affairs and federal priorities that impact the physical therapy profession and its patients, as well as learn about new information that comes with a new Congress. Members network with one another, members of Congress and have the opportunity to speak with their representatives in person about issues facing their state and the profession as a whole.
