Northeast Events and District Meetings​

Network, Learn, Share!

The Northeast District meetings occur on the 2nd Tuesday of the month. We meet six times per year: March, April, May, September, October, and November. The meetings begin with networking at 6:30pm, followed by a presentation at 7:00pm. Most of our meeting presentations provide 1 contact hour of education! A brief business meeting usually follows and meetings typically conclude by 8:30pm.

The Northeast District invites you to join us at our monthly meetings! 

2018 MEETING DATEs

MAY

Topic: House of Delegates Discussion

Course Description: An opportunity to hear about the upcoming topics of relevance to the PT profession as our delegates prepare for the Annual House of Delegates meeting in Orlando, FL. The House of Delegates (House) is an APTA policy-making body. The House meets annually for 3 successive days each spring, during which time delegates make decisions on issues that may have far-reaching implications for the association and for the profession of physical therapy. Business of the House follows parliamentary procedure and is conducted through the introduction of delegate-proposed 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 the members, or describe a goal the association wishes to achieve.
