Practice House of Delegates

The House of Delegates (House) is an APTA policy-making body comprised of voting chapter delegates, non-voting delegates (the Board of Directors and section, assembly, and PTA Caucus delegates), and consultants.

Business of the House is conducted through the introduction of motions, which may amend APTA's bylaws, direct a course of action, articulate an association attitude on the physical therapy needs of the public or the needs of members, or describe a goal the association wishes to achieve. Motions are developed by delegates and reviewed by the Reference Committee before being published in Packet I in late April.

Motions may then go through numerous revisions before being voted on by the House, including potential revisions during House discussion.

The House of Delegates Community includes all materials (other than existing policies) related to the House of Delegates. It is available to all APTA members.
