Celebrating Our Centennial
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.
We want you to engage, celebrate, and serve, as we raise awareness about our great profession and enshrine a proud legacy for future generations.
Our story began with a calling: to serve those who sacrificed so much for our country in World War I. Where others saw limitation, we saw potential. Since our founding in 1921, we have moved forward together, with a passion and commitment to transform lives and strengthen our profession.
