A Final Message from MNPTA President Paul Niemuth

As I write my last message as the President of MNPTA, I can’t help but look back at the last three years with an enormous sense of gratitude to the entire Chapter for your support. Without the strong leadership of our board of directors, our committee chairs, our members, our partners and association director, we couldn’t have accomplished so many wonderful things. There are a few that I’m especially proud of: 

  • We successfully passed a major piece of legislation that allows PT’s to authorize disability parking permits for our patients
  • We’ve stabilized our Chapter’s financial position
  • We combined and restructured our Conference and Continuing Education Committees to create a very effective and efficient Education Committee and program
  • Our membership grew consistently every month for the past three years
  • Contributions to our Political Action Committee have increased
  • We've created a new Partners Program to engage our community partners in new ways
  • We created an online on-demand Ethics course to fulfill the requirement from the PT board

While we’ve so much to be proud of and these accomplishments represent thousands of hours volunteer work, our Chapter and profession still has much to do. Our new Chapter President, Holly Clynch and new board members David Chapman and Rachel Winthrop will continue along with the rest of the board to advance our profession and drive the Chapter’s strategic plan. 

Now, I’m not going away. I’ll assume a role of past president and be there to assist Holly with her new role, and stay involved in our State Government Affairs and Education Committees. My passion for our profession, Association and Chapter will always be there. As I step down from my position, I have a few last requests: recruit new members, contribute to our PAC, get involved in our Association and forever remain passionate about our profession and the privilege we have to serve our patients. 


Paul Niemuth, PT, DSc, OCS, ATC
MNPTA President
