How Your Chapter Works

Each chapter is governed by an elected board of directors, all of whom are available to discuss issues affecting the Association and the physical therapy profession. The chapter president is responsible for governing and directing all chapter activities. The chief delegate participates in the House of Delegates, which is the highest decision-making body of the American Physical Therapy Association, and makes decisions on issues that frequently have far-reaching implications for the Association and the profession.

Mission: The Maine Chapter supports the highest quality physical therapy services within the state, promotes the profession of physical therapy, and represents the chapter members to the American Physical Therapy Association.
