Step Up into Leadership!

Nominations now open for 2020 Chapter, District, and SIG Elections!

Are you looking for an opportunity to become more involved in decisions that could impact the future of not only your professional association, but the future of physical therapy in Illinois?  Do you know someone who demonstrates the ability to effectively lead and support our Association? Each year the IPTA votes leaders into office at the district and Chapter levels.

The IPTA seeks candidates who can bring together all stakeholders within the profession in order to dialogue and collaborate on critical issues, develop innovative solutions to enhance health services delivery, and to increase the value of physical therapy to society. The ideal candidates are those who can also assist the Association to maximize the value of membership.

Need a few reasons to consider running (or nominating someone) for a leadership position?  Perhaps these seven reasons will provide the catalyst that you need:

Top 7 Reasons to Run (or Nominate Someone) for an IPTA Chapter or District Leadership Position

  1. Exert Your Voice – we all have different experiences, expertise, and social identities that should be brought to the table to empower our Association to achieve strategic goals
  2. Gain Respect – those people in leadership positions are relied upon to listen to the members and create opportunities for everyone toward professional advancement
  3. Revitalize Your Professional Passion – being surrounded by the passion of other IPTA leaders and members reignites your resolve to drive the profession forward
  4. Network  – sometimes who you know really does matter when trying to bring ideas and initiatives to fruition
  5. Leave Your Comfort Zone – you will learn to make meaningful decisions that shape the Association with a conviction you never thought  you had
  6. Challenge Members to Get Involved – you can set the tone and bring an attitude that motivates members and non-members to take action and get involved
  7. Have Fun! – as a leader within the IPTA you will establish bonds and friendships that may last the rest of your career and life
