A Message from MNPTA President Holly Clynch


Greetings Members!

I am honored to have begun serving my term as MNPTA president on July 1. One of my reasons for running for this office was to make members more aware of the global professional benefits and individual member benefits and hat one gets out of membership. To that end, I hope to use these periodic emails to let you know what MNPTA is doing for you, in hopes that you will join us in these efforts. 

This month, I’d like to focus on ways that we can all engage with our community, in line with APTA’s vision and mission. Members of the MNPTA Board of Directors will be participating in various events as part of the annual PT Day of Service (PTDOS) on Saturday, October 12. This united effort to “give back” was created by two alumni of the APTA’s Student Assembly, and has become a global initiative. There are many options for how and when you can participate in this opportunity “give back” and increase awareness of PT. To learn more, go to http://ptdayofservice.com/. Other opportunities to serve and promote the profession of PT include National Falls Prevention Day on September 23, and October’s annual National PT Month. Is your facility doing something to celebrate any of these events? Send us a photo that we can post on our Facebook page! 

Another important October chapter activity is our Payer Summit on Friday, October 11. The theme is “Partnering in Policy and Payment,” and features panelists from local payer organizations and members of the chapter’s Payer Workgroup. Participants will learn from a range of perspectives on this complicated issue and will earn CEUs for the event. There are limited spots available, so register soon!

Again, one of my goals is to make chapter membership and involvement more appealing to everyone, especially to students and early professionals, in order to ensure the future of our chapter. But as someone who didn’t get actively involved in the chapter until mid-way through my career, I know that it’s never too late to get involved. No matter what your level of engagement, we need each and every one of you! If you’d like more information on how to get involved, contact info@mnapta.org or email me directly at hmclynch@stkate.edu.  

Sincerely,
Holly Clynch,  PT, DPT, MA
MNPTA President
