Member Benefits


Here are some of the benefits of APTA Washington membership.

Answers on Demand

We track down answers to questions for our members through our web form Ask APTA WA or by email. Questions range from queries about ethics and scope of practice to product information and human resource management.

Discounted Continuing Education

APTA Washington Conferences 
Our annual three-day conference in the fall of each year features high quality education in multiple specialty areas. It's a chance for students and new grads to network with leaders in the profession, and a chance for friends from around the state to see each other and compare notes. 

APTA Washington District Courses
Each year in the spring, we offer a one-day course in one or two of our geographic districts. This is usually a lab course.

APTA Continuing Education
APTA offers numerous courses at locations around the country, as well as online and audio learning options.

Members receive discounts on all continuing education.

Legislative Advocacy

APTA and the Washington chapter monitor and advocate for dozens of regulatory issues each year. In Washington, we usually focus on one or two priority issues that have been identified by members.

Each year we organize a day in Olympia where members are briefed so they may meet with their legislators about that year's issues.

Reimbursement Information and Advocacy

APTA and the Washington chapter continually monitor trends and advocates for members regarding payment issues for public and private payers.

To ask a question or to let us know about an issue, use the Ask APTA WA online form.
