Introduce a non-member to the IPTA during National Physical Therapy Month!

For every non-member you bring to your October District meeting, you’ll receive one entry into the Membership Matters lottery!

For each of your guest(s) who become an IPTA PT, PTA or student member by November 1st, 2017, you’ll earn an additional 5 entries!

The grand prize drawing will take place at the November 16th #THIRDTHURSDAY where one name will be picked to receive FREE TWO-DAY REGISTRATION for REVITALIZE 2018.

Here’s how it works:


1) Invite a non-member guest (or two or ten) to your district meeting. 

2) Sign in and have your guest(s) sign in noting you are their host. 

3) The sign-in sheets will be sent to the Chapter office who will track your entries. If the Chapter receives notification from the APTA that your guest(s) have joined by November 1st, 2017, we will add your additional 5 entries per new member! 

4) Encourage your guest to consider membership. 

5) Attend or tune in virtually to the November 16th #THIRDTHURSDAY to see the live drawing. 

Good luck!

Why Get Involved?

Getting together with people with similar interests, who live in the same area, and face similar challenges is what we are all about – and from those great networking and learning opportunities come great conversations, fun activities, new friends, and you may even learn something new. One of the greatest benefits of the IPTA is the opportunity to get involved, participate, and learn updates on your professional association and profession within your district!

The IPTA is proud to be a 2017 Silver Sponsor & Ambassador for Global PT Day of Service (October 14, 2017). “PTDOS” is a day of service that recognizes that as physical therapy professionals we have the ability to positively impact change.
