Thinking about attending the APTA NEXT Conference and Exposition, June 12 to 15 in Chicago? The APTA offers a form letter that you could customize and give to your employer to help justify the expense and the time away from the practice, as well as its overall return on investment.
Numerous educational sessions are available, providing opportunities to earn continuing education credits and to receive knowledge that could be put into practice immediately. The sessions fall under nine educational tracks: client and patient care, experience zone, innovative care, inspiration hub, leadership, movement system, payment, prevention and wellness, and unique populations.

In addition, the conference provides daily networking events for attendees to meet and mingle with peers and industry leaders. These events include a first timer’s event with APTA President Sharon Dunn and an opening reception in the exhibit hall, welcome and networking coffees, and a coffee and conversation session with the NEXT Programming Committee.

On top of that, session highlights include preconference courses, two signature lectures, the Oxford debate, as well as hands-on demonstrations and creative collaborations.

The form letter is available to download from the APTA NEXT Conference and Exposition’s registration page.

The early bird deadline to register for the conference is April 5.
