2019 CHAPTER ELECTION RESULTS

The members with the most votes were elected to hold the positions of Chapter Treasurer, Chief Delegate, Speaker of the Assembly, PTA Director, and Nominating Committee Member will begin their terms January 1st, 2020. Also elected were the Chapter's At Large Delegates to the APTA House of Delegates for 2020-2021.


CHAPTER TREASURER

Christina Frank, PT, MBA

I have a passion for our profession and have enjoyed working at the board level again. Working together, we were able to achieve direct access, which for so long has been a dream. It has also been very exciting to watch the growth of the IPTF and be able to give grants to those researching in PT. It's been amazing to have a front row seat and be a part of a strong team of committed individuals working toward common goals.

Although I love physical therapy, my personal strength is business (MBA) with Treasurer being a role that best fits my skill set. I have been working with budgets related to healthcare for over 20 years. I really enjoy numbers and excel at managing budgets. As an active member of the IPTA for the last 17 years, I’ve held many different positions at the state and district levels. This broad range of experience has prepared me to be a member of the Executive Committee and as your current Treasurer (2018-2019). As with any new role, there is a learning curve and confidence builds with experience. I'd like the opportunity to continue in this role, gaining experience and confidence to best serve our profession and our association.


CHAPTER CHIEF DELEGATE

Karen Goodlow, PT, DPT, NCS

I am honored to be slated to serve the Illinois Delegation in this role. It has been a privilege to serve as the Northern District representative to the APTA House of Delegates for the past 5 years, and in that time, I have learned so much about how our organization functions and have been a part of some very important motions and conversations about the role and the future of the APTA. As Chief Delegate, I feel my strong organizational skills and my ability to see all sides of an issue will help to keep our delegation strong and focus our work. Illinois has a long history of being a strong delegation, and I will help to keep this tradition alive, championing issues and standing up for what we feel is right. I look forward to this opportunity and thank you for putting your trust in me for this important role!


CHAPTER SPEAKER OF THE ASSEMBLY

Tina Jonas, PT, DPT, Cert MDT

I am currently completing the second year as my role as Speaker of the Assembly and feel that I have grown in this position and have much more to offer. In the past year I have learned so much that has helped to prepare me for another productive meeting of the membership and create tools to encourage connections and conversations throughout the year. With the assistance of the Chapter office staff, I have revamped the Assembly webpage and created a new video library to assist members in understanding the Assembly in a new format. I would like the opportunity to continue to contribute toward the Assembly's business and build on these components in the Speaker's role and welcome new ideas to connect with more of the Association's membership. Please come and visit with me at the 2019 Revitalize Conference and Assembly and let me share some ideas on what I'd like to continue to do for our Association. I look forward to our continued conversation. Thank you.


CHAPTER PTA DIRECTOR

Jason Magafas, PTA

I've loved getting involved as much as I can and everyone in the IPTA has been incredibly friendly and welcoming. As a student I jumped into being the SPTA Director and did my best getting my school involvement up. Ever since ending my tenure as a student the professional whirlwind during the first year has finally subsided enough to allow me to resume getting active again and I am excited to be nominated to the ballot and am ready to serve my profession to the highest of my abilities.


CHAPTER DELEGATES - AT - LARGE

Please note: The Delegates at Large are listed in order starting with the TOP SIX candidates who received the most votes. The number of Delegates at Large are determined by apportionment by the APTA. Illinois' at large delegates will be determined by the July 2019 total IPTA membership. Alternate Delegates, if needed, shall be selected from the pool of candidates remaining in the number of votes received after the election of the District delegate.

Jennifer Ryan, PT, DPT, MS, CCS

Babette Sanders, PT, DPT, FAPTA

Patrick Withrow, PT, DPT, GCS

Bradford Tracy, PT, DPT, OCS, FAAOMPT

Sarah Haag, PT, DPT, MS, WCS

Sally Taylor, PT, DPT, NCS, OCS


CHAPTER NOMINATING COMMITTEE MEMBER

Sarah Haag, PT, DPT, MS, WCS

Over the past 10 years, I've enjoyed becoming more involved with our amazing profession and appreciate all of the people that work hard to move our profession forward. I am able and willing to commit time and effort to be part of the team that represents and works for the physical therapists and physical therapist assistants of Illinois.


 

2019 DISTRICT RESULTS

Those elected into position will take office on January 1st, 2020

Assembly Apportionment: Note that Assembly PT and PTA Representatives will be determined by September 1st. District allocation of Assembly Representatives is based on the July membership numbers, which APTA provides to the Chapter Office in mid-August. Members who received the most number of votes will be elected to serve as representatives (2020-2021). Per the District Rules of Order, every year districts elect 1/2 of their apportioned Assembly Representatives to serve a 2 year term.
Alternates: All of the remaining names from the ballot, will be listed in vote order, and those members will be eligible to serve as alternate representatives for a one year term only (2020).
Vacancies: Assembly Representatives are elected into position by their district membership. The IPTA bylaws do not provide for representatives to be appointed to fill vacancies. If a district has PT/PTA Representative vacancies after all alternate representatives have been placed, those spots will remain vacant until the next election.
