Illinois Chapter Joins Career Starter Dues Expansion Pilot


More APTA members who are recent PT and PTA school graduates will see savings on their membership dues. Newly eligible graduates from as early as 2010 will automatically see discounts on their dues amounts in 2014, because of a limited-time pilot expansion of the Career Starter Dues program The pilot has been approved through 2018 and is subject to change by the APTA Board of Directors.


The program provides a 50% discount off national and chapter dues at the first renewal post-graduation. The pilot extends sliding discounts (40%, 30%, and 20%) for members 2-4 years post-graduation.


How do I know if I'm eligible for Career Starter Dues savings?

  • Make sure that your APTA student membership is active at graduation.

The Illinois Physical Therapy Association has chosen to participate in this pilot, along with 20+ other chapters. APTA research indicates that membership cost can be a significant barrier to new graduates and that membership retention increases sharply for PTs and PTAs who have retained their membership for the first 5 years since graduation.
