KPTA WANTS YOU

Why is it important that you get involved?

Individuals that get involved are effective at impacting the profession! Teamwork and collaboration will help us improve our profession! The best way to ensure that your profession is being molded into the profession you want is to participate in the inner workings of the KPTA and APTA. Being involved doesn't necessarily mean that all your time is consumed by your involvement. It may be as simple as volunteering at a conference, sitting on a committee that meets once a month, or participating during legislative day at the Capitol.
