It is time to prepare for the annual Federal Advocacy Forum!

It is time to prepare for the annual Federal Advocacy Forum!  Now is the time that APTA Indiana starts to look for students to attend the annual Federal Affairs Forum, held in Washington, D.C.

This 2021 Federal Advocacy Forum is scheduled for during the week of September 12th, 2021 when it will coincide with APTA House of Delegates and APTA’s Centennial Celebration, with the potential to see APTA’s new HQ as well, so you will not want to miss out! During the FAF, we will talk about regulatory affairs and federal priorities, have numerous speakers, and announce some new information that comes with a new Congress.  Do not miss this opportunity to learn more, network with fellow colleagues, meet with congressional staff, and spend time in a great city filled with opportunities.

What do I need you to do?  Glad you asked.  This opportunity is open to all students who are Indiana residents and APTA members.  All we ask is that you send in an essay that outlines what you would like to learn by attending the FAF.  That’s it!  Once all essays have been received, a decision will be made as to who attends based on the submitted essays.  All are welcome to join us in D.C., but for those who are chosen via their essay, INAPTA will be covering your registration, airfare, and hotel and typically a meal or two as well (estimated value at $1000).

All essays due by June 30th, 2021.  This will allow those who will be attending to make their final arrangements in time to attend.

Essay submissions and/or Questions, please contact Blair Frye, PT, Federal Affairs Liaison: blairfrye@yahoo.com.  Be sure to include all relevant contact information (email and phone) as part of your essay.

Maximize the lifelong health, function, and well-being of people in Indiana and advance the practice of physical therapy through advocacy, collaboration, and education.
