Call for Proposals for the 2017 Annual Conference
April 12, 2017
The American Physical Therapy Associations (APTAs) of DC and Maryland are accepting proposals for the 2017 Annual Conference. We are the only professional organizations representing physical therapists and physical therapist assistants in DC and Maryland. The purpose of this joint Annual Conference is to foster advancements in physical therapy practice, research, and education. We will be accepting proposals through May 1, 2017.
Speaking at our Regional Annual Conference is a great opportunity to share your knowledge and enthusiasm. We want to encourage speaker participation and will be offering incentives such as discounted registration and honoraria for selected sessions. If not selected, we’ll offer you a discount off the early-bird registration rate. For selected sessions, we will offer a flat honorarium that can be divided among the speakers of that session in whatever manner those speakers decide. We welcome PTs, PTAs, and all others with expertise in the topic of their presentation to present a proposal for this conference.
Proposals may be for educational sessions for 4 hours or for a 1 or 2 day course.
Selection of proposals will be based on the foundation in evidence, clarity of proposal, probable interest to participants, fiscal feasibility, and space and time constraints.
