NPTA Legislative Breakfast Is a Success!


NPTA Members Watch the Unicameral in Action

NPTA Members Make Their Mark at Legislative Breakfast

A group of 70 physical therapy professionals attended the annual state legislative breakfast Feburary 1st.  They were able to make great connections with their senators and impress them with a room full of attendees. Senators Hilkemann and Morfeld addressed the group on several topics ranging from specific bills, to the importance of staying involved in your association. As a special treat, the NPTA presence was announced in the legislative room and received a standing ovation from the senators on the legislative floor.  A special shout out to all those who attended, your time and efforts do not go unnoticed!  Each and every voice makes a difference!
