2020 Centennial Scholar

APTA Centennial Scholars Program: 

In 2021, APTA will hold a 12-month program to help build a cadre of future association leaders at both the component and national levels to support our collective quest for a diverse and prepared leadership pool. APTA chapters and sections will sponsor the 100 scholars, who will be paired with mentors and participate in virtual learning and three in-person events, while working on capstone projects to benefit their sponsors. APTA chapters and sections may use any criteria they wish to select an APTA member who they want to prepare to be a future association leader. APTA is currently collaborating with chapters and sections with the goal of opening scholar and mentor recruitment in June 2020.
