The importance of Serving

 

Since FSBPT® was founded in 1987, volunteers have helped us work through the many different challenges we've faced. From promoting uniform standards nationwide to developing the national physical therapy exam (NPTE®), volunteers and FSBPT staff have worked together to protect the American public by promoting safe and competent physical therapy care.

Our volunteers play a major role in advancing our mission. They participate on our committees and task forces, serve on our board of directors, and apply their skills as item writers for the NPTE.

 

"I volunteer with FSBPT because of the work it does to uphold and elevate the standard for PT care for all of those we're privileged enough to serve. To be able to contribute in some small way to the massive achievements this organization has made nationwide over the last five years has been exciting, humbling, and a true honor. For those considering volunteering, do it. Jump in with both feet and bring your energy, your passion for patients, and a sincere desire to learn more than you ever thought possible."

– David Reed, Member of the Finance Committee, Member of the 2018 Membership Survey Task Force, Former Chair of the Ethics and Legislation Committee

“I volunteer for several reasons: 1) I get to contribute to issues that are important to states; 2) I get to meet great people from all jurisdictions; and 3) serving FSBPT allows me to give back to a great profession that has given me so much. I’ve learned a great deal about the PT profession and I’ve grown as a leader from these experiences. I encourage you to give volunteering for FSBPT a try! I find my volunteer involvement to be valuable, and I think you’ll also find gratifying experiences being part of a productive team.”

– Alicia Rabena-Amen, Member of the 2018 Membership Survey Task Force, Former Chair of the Foreign Educated Stantards Committee
