A Message From Your IPTA President

- Mike Riley, PT
IPTA President (2016 - 2021)
Member since 1973

It is with great anticipation that we wait for the governor’s signature on our direct access bill.  The united effort of our members, partners and constituents was apparent at every step of this process. I want to personally thank all of the individuals and organizations as well as our executive director and staff who were vital to the success of this campaign.

This association is vital to the future of the physical therapy profession and I commend those individuals that have chosen membership and thank those that have gone beyond by volunteering to serve, protect and grow our profession. Yes, dry needling and direct access are great accomplishments, but our work is far from over. There is the daily work on behalf of our members that many times goes unnoticed as well as more initiatives ahead. 

I hope our recent legislative wins will be a wake up call for those physical therapists and assistants who have either not renewed their membership or have never chosen to belong to the association that it is time to stop relying on others to fight the fight for them. Membership is the key to our future as we continue to strive to better our field.
