How Your Chapter Works

Each chapter is governed by an elected board of directors, all of whom are available to discuss issues affecting the association and the physical therapy profession. The chapter president is responsible for governing and directing all chapter activities. The chief delegate participates in the House of Delegates, which is the highest decision-making body of the association, and makes decisions on issues that frequently have far-reaching implications for the association and the profession. To reach the president, the chief delegate, or other chapter officers, contact the chapter office listed above.
