FPTA Student Special Interest Group-SSIG

The FPTA Student Special Interest Group (SSIG) is a group that has been created to benefit Florida PT and PTA students by providing a state-level resource for people to network and develop relationships that will last a lifetime. The SSIG works to promote student membership, participation and leadership of students within the FPTA and to foster communication and collaboration of students between schools.

There are many opportunities to get involved with the Student SIG. If you are interested in joining a project committee or being a committee chair, please send an email to ssigfpta@gmail.com. Check out our Facebook page FPTA Student Special Interest Group.
