APTA | 2023 APTA Association Leadership Scholar Program:Open to current members. Throughout the year, the selected scholars will engage in a robust curriculum that covers association leadership, management topics, and baseline information for the 2022-2024 Strategic Plan and factors that impact future leaders, such as financial strains, workforce demands, advocacy efforts, and membership recruitment and retention. The focus for 2023 will be on the curriculum and continuing to build a high-value, sustainable program for years to come, so scholars will not be tasked to complete individual capstone projects. Group projects and/or engagement activities may be assigned as part of the curriculum and each scholar will be responsible for sharing a year-end assessment of their experience and creating a personal leadership development plan. Deadline: November 15, 2022.
