APTA’s 2015-2016 Public Policy Priorities

posted: January 26, 2015

 

APTA establishes its public policy priorities every 2 years in conjunction with each new session of Congress.

Priorities are determined through member input and then review by APTA's Public Policy and Advocacy Committee (PPAC), followed by review and approval by APTA's Board of Directors.

APTA's Public Policy Priorities do not represent the full scope of APTA's ongoing policy initiatives. Instead, the Priorities focus on initiatives that have been identified as requiring the most attention, strategy, and advocacy to help APTA achieve its vision of transforming society by optimizing movement to improve the human experience.

Download APTA's 2015-2016 Public Policy Priorities (.pdf)
This document explains current legislative and regulatory priorities of the association and provides links to critical APTA and external resources. Because APTA is committed to a forward-thinking approach in addressing current member needs and planning for the profession's future, this resource also is designed to show members and others the "interconnectedness" of the association's current policies, how they support ongoing policy initiatives, and how they help strengthen the future of our profession.
