Course/Session Description: Our Chief Delegate and APTA KS delegates will be presenting on this year’s APTA House of Delegates, motions and the final vote and determination of motions adopted as well as challenges this year regarding motion language. They will be discussing what House of Delegates is and why it is in place to be the policymaking body. This body comprises voting chapter delegates, nonvoting delegates (the Board of Directors and section, assembly, and PTA Caucus delegates), and consultants. The House meets annually, making decisions on issues that may have far-reaching implications for the association and for the profession of physical therapy. APTA Kansas President and Board of Directors will be presenting on current issues and summarizing current Strategic Goals and Objectives. During this Fall Conference, our treasurer also will be reporting on the yearly budget to members and how it aligns with the Strategic Plan. Our President will also be discussing specific initiatives of the APTA and how, due to the federated model, this affects our Chapter and our own initiatives. She will also discuss what the Leadership Congress accomplished this year and what the plans are for the future in national Leadership Congress meetings. Our Programming Chair will be reporting on our first Kansas state accredited Sports Residency program. He will discuss what a residency program is and its importance for the PT interested in the certification from the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties. There are 362 current residency programs in the US with the bulk of them being orthopedic. He will discuss the current process for a residency accreditation, the sports residency program in specific, and how LMC meets the expected criteria. There are currently ten certified Physical Therapy specialist programs: Cardiovascular and Pulmonary, Orthopaedic, Pediatric, Sports, Clinical Electrophysiologic, Neurologic, Geriatric, Women's Health, Oncologic and Wound Management.
