PT-PAC: Physical Therapy Political Action Committee

Support PT-PAC

Get More Traction with Your $20 Action


Since 2007, APTA member participation in PT-PAC has slowly declined, from 11.7% to 7.4% in 2013.  If you break that down by PTs, PTAs, and students you find the following:

  • 14.4% to 9.8% PTs
  • 7.0% to 3.2% PTAs
  • 3.5% to 2.2% Students

Deeply concerned by this alarming trend, we surveyed more than 6,000 members about PT-PAC.  What we found is that many APTA members would support PT-PAC every year but many members had questions or had misconceptions of how PT-PAC worked.  To answer some of these questions, PT-PAC recently published articles in its monthly newsletter to answer the following questions:

We hope that you will join our efforts to impact legislation in Congress by supporting our $20 campaign.  If every APTA member donated $20 each year, the physical therapy profession would be the largest health care provider PAC in the country.  Think about the possibilities and changes we could make in Congress and for our patients.
