Membership Matters

The mission of the Private Practice Section (PPS) is to champion the success of the physical therapist in business. Whether you’ve just joined or are a long-time member, PPS is here to support your efforts and provide the resources and tools to help you meet your goals. But don’t take our word for it, hear from our members about what PPS membership means for them and their business.

I joined to support APTA Private Practice, to access the valuable resources it provides to members, and for the networking opportunities it affords as I begin my venture as an entrepreneur.


PPS provides payment tools and resources to guide you through the complicated payment environment. Updated regularly, the payment tools and resources are some of the most sought-after PPS membership resources. Access them at ppsapta.org/practice-management/payment-resources.

You’re Invited!

In the shadow of the Rocky Mountains, join us to relax in your favorite flannel and reflect on another great conference! We’ll transform our meeting space into your local beer garden. Come enjoy craft beer, a great band, and another fabulous celebration with old and new friends!
