Wednesday, August 14, 2019   (1 Comments)

On behalf of the APTA Board of Directors, it is my honor to inform you that you have been selected by the Florida Chapter as a 2019 recipient of the Emerging Leader Award. A certificate of recognition is enclosed. In addition, you will be 1 of 23 members who, like you, were nominated by their component leadership to merit this honor and to be recognized in the December issue of PT in Motion Magazine.

The Emerging Leader Award was established to annually honor individuals who have demonstrated extraordinary service to the profession and APTA early in their careers. Here’s an excerpt of what your component leadership had to say about your abilities and accomplishments:

"It is my pleasure to recommend Amanda Williamson for the APTA Emergin Leader Award. I have known Amanda as both a student and early professional leader within the Florida Physical Therapy Association and she is the perfect example of an Emerging Leader."

We thank you and are extremely appreciative of the effective leadership qualities that you consistently illustrate, and that have made you an obvious choice for this award. You have been recognized by your component as an individual who has made exceptional overall accomplishments and contributions to the Association, your chapter and/or section, and to the physical therapy profession.

Please accept our warmest congratulations, knowing that you have displayed all that it takes to be a great leader. We are delighted that you serve as a role model for others and are enthusiastic about your future involvement in APTA. If at any point in your journey in the physical therapy profession I can assist you, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Again, thank you for all that you do.
