Nominations are being accepted for the FPTA Student Special Interest Group (SSIG) leadership positions. These positions give students the opportunity to lead, network and get more involved in the Florida Physical Therapy Association. The positions are open to any eager PT or PTA student. There are 5 positions available currently. If you would like to get to know the current leaders for a particular position, you can view them here. To apply, complete and submit the form below.

As a student leader, you will represent your state and have opportunities to meet many leaders in our field.

The position will be voted for at the FPTA Student Conclave being held January 19-20, 2018. It is encouraged but you are not required to attend the conference to apply for a position.


Candidate Information:

  • Only one student per school is allowed to accept a position on the Executive Committee.
  • More than one student per school may apply for the Executive Committee.
  • If two students from the same school are elected to different positions on the executive committee then the student with the higher position (i.e. Chair) has the decision to accept or pass on the position. If the student accepts the higher position then the next highest scoring candidate from a different school will be awarded the lower position.
  • If a student is applying for multiple positions then they may submit one application and biography but must submit multiple candidate statements.
