House Happenings: Abridged

Karen Goodlow, PT, DPT, NCS
IPTA Chief Delegate
Member since 1994

With the beginning of a new year, the work for APTA’s House of Delegates is underway! Delegates elected from across the nation come together every year to make decisions on issues that face our organization and profession. The 2020 House of Delegates will take place June 1-3, 2020 in Pheonix, Arizona.

Conversations are happening on the APTA House of Delegates community on the HUB, and all members can follow along with motion discussions, HOD's activities and resources.

APTA President, Sharon Dunn, PT, PhD, addressed last year’s House in a speech that touched on many of the significant issues facing the profession. Her inspiring Presidential Address can be found by clicking here.

Many of the issues that are being discussed leading up to this year’s House come directly from Dr. Dunn’s address and her challenge to “Be bold”. Motions are being considered to address the cost of education and student debt; challenges related to uncompensated care; changes to the core values for PTs and PTAs; and many more.

The Illinois delegation welcomes your feedback and input on these or other issues you face in your practice.

Your 2020 Illinois Delegation members include: Karen Goodlow, PT (Chief); Mike Riley, PT (President); April Ritz, PT (Central); Bridget Fowler, PT (Eastern); Elliot Cohee, PT (East Central); Jeffrey Damaschke, PT (Northern); Barb Gutierrez, PT (North Central); Jaime Fortier-Jones, PT (Southern); Jane Winders, PT (West Central); Vicki Lee, PT (Western); and At-Large Delegates: Mike Riley Jr. PT, Sarah Keller, PT; Julie Schwertfeger, PT; Jen Ryan, PT; and Babette Sanders, PT.
