Get Involved

Maximize your membership by becoming involved in PPS programs and events. Members can engage through volunteer committee work, webinar participation and instruction, attending PPS events and conferences, and by submitting articles to Impact Magazine, the Private Practice Section's monthly publication.

Volunteer Committees

Fill out a volunteer application to become involved in any of the below volunteer committees. Committee members are nominated based on their applications, and can fill 1, 2, or 3 year terms. If you wish to become involved in a committee but aren't sure that you are ready for a nominated position, fill out an application anyway. PPS consistently has project-based volunteer positions available that do not require a nomination or long-term time commitments.

Become A Volunteer

Attend an Event

PPS offers numerous opportunities for PTs around the country to gather, network, and learn together. Events include catered tracks for students, administrators, and PTs interested in developing an array of business-related knowledge for physical therapists.

Join the Peer2Peer Network

The Peer2Peer Network carefully matches PTs from non-competing regions to participate in a PT Mastermind program. Participants meet twice a year for structured face-to-face meetings with other executives and content experts. Peers become accountable to each other as they set goals, assess weaknesses and grow as leaders in the physical therapy industry. Learn more about the Peer2Peer NetWorks program.
