The New Strategic Plan: How Did we get here?

The IPTA kicked off the year with a comprehensive survey to members which was designed to help us develop our strategic plan. What did we learn about our members? 

THINGS WE DO:

#THIRDTHURSDAYS - Launched in June, 2014, #THIRD THURSDAY (#TT) is held on the third Thursday of every month.  #TTs are open house events at the Chapter Office in Naperville from 5:30-8 pm. Events differ from month to month and include educational presentations and discussion around topics relevant to the practice of PT in Illinois. Members and non-members are welcome at all #THIRDTHURSDAY events and members can earn FREE CE credits by either attending in person, utilizing technology to attend virtually, or by downloading a pre-recorded session from the virtual library.  Non-members can attend and earn CE for the first two session they attend in person or virtually, or pay $35 to download a pre-recorded session.

99% KNEW ABOUT THIS Program

71% HAVE PARTICIPATED in person, virtually, or on demand

100% thought it was a GOOD MEMBER BENEFIT

 

SPOTLIGHT ON RESEARCH WEBINARS - The IPTA began the research webinar series in May, 2015. Held on the second Thursday of every month, these FREE live webinars help our members stay informed about ongoing research efforts, as well as gain insight and knowledge on current research and researchers. Participants earn FREE CE by completing the post-webinar quiz.

The cool thing I noticed is the gift card winners are members I am less familiar with - thanks for supporting the IPTA and providing your opinions and feedback! Your engagement helps drive our association and raises the value of membership. Best to all of you! Jeannette Elliott PS - where is Alton, IL?
