Building a community that advances the profession of physical therapy to improve the health of society. 
The American Physical Therapy Association's mission statement reflects why we exist: YOU. Your efforts impact the lives of patients, students, and colleagues on a daily basis. Your engagement in the conversation and the work of this association is how we move this profession forward. Build your community by volunteering. You are APTA. 


Join the ONE by ONE Campaign and Grow Our Collective Voice

The American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) and The Home Health Section has been built—one member at a time—into an inclusive and impactful community of over 100,000 members, who support APTA's mission of building a community that advances the profession of physical therapy to improve the health of society. APTA's new member referral campaign ONE by ONE allows you to play an active role in building APTA's membership, and earn rewards for doing so.

Any current active APTA member is eligible to participate as a recruiter and eligible to win a ONE by ONE incentive by encouraging a new member to join APTA. To receive credit for each new or reinstated member recruited, online and paper applications must reference the email address affiliated with the recruiting member's APTA membership. Applications without the referring member's email cannot qualify toward an incentive drawing.

Once a new member is on board, they are now also eligible to recruit others ONE by ONE and can be entered into drawings, so recruit early and often! The participating chapter and section with the largest year-over-year growth during ONE by ONE will win a prize. Let's strive to make the Home Health Section the largest APTA section!

The program runs through September 30, 2020. For more information on full eligibility rules, email, and social media templates, plus referral cards that you can share with your colleagues, visit
