This April, 2017 marks my 10th anniversary with IPTA — just in time for the 2017 REVITALIZE Conference & EXPO. When I look back at how far we have come since I joined the association, I am proud of our efforts, our accomplishments, and how we have laid such a strong foundation for the physical therapy profession to continue to build upon. I’m excited about what will happen next.
Truthfully though, I’m ALWAYS excited about our annual conference and assembly of representatives. It’s the one time each year that I am able to personally meet and talk with members from every part of the state. As IPTA executive director, I do a lot of listening — and a lot of talking too, connecting people with people, sharing resources, and most importantly, explaining what the IPTA is doing to help advance the physical therapy profession in Illinois. It’s wonderful to see everyone connect and inspiring to hear and see so much passion expressed during the assembly as we discuss vital issues.
