Celebrating Our Centennial (1921 – 2021)
In 2021, we will celebrate 100 years as a member association—and launch our next century as the largest community for physical therapists, physical therapist assistants, and students.
On this landmark occasion we want to embrace our rich history and generate momentum toward our exciting future. The easy-to-navigate site will evolve over time, serving as a destination not only for gaining a better understanding of the association’s history but for sharing artifacts, stories, and memories, learning about opportunities for centennial-related public service initiatives, and keeping up with the latest on just how APTA plans to mark its birthday in 2021.
In fact, right now APTA is asking members to contribute ideas, photos, and thoughts via a submission form at the bottom of the webpage. Of particular interest: members’ opinions on the most important milestones in the physical therapy profession.
