Education Sessions
Research (Posters and Platforms)

In 2022, APTA MA will host an in person conference at Norwood Four Points.
We are now taking applications for potential Education Sessions and Research Presentations.

The theme for our conference this year is Advancing Your Passion. As we come back together as colleagues, we look to refresh as a profession and as professionals.

In addition, to meet all the comfort levels of our potential attendees and presenters, we are also considering a synchronous, virtual conference in collaboration with APTA CT, NH and RI. This will take place in December 2022. 

We will have an option in the proposal to choose an in person presentation and / or presenting virtually in December.

Education presentation time will be 60 or 90 minutes.
Research / case study presentation can be a poster or platform.

Application must be submitted through the proposal forms linked below.    

Proposals will be reviewed by the Annual Conference Committee members.
