NCPTA Leadership Holds Strategic Planning Retreat
The NCPTA Leadership held a Strategic Planning Retreat and board meetings on the beautiful campus of Elon University on January 5 and 6. Facilitated by APTA Board Liaison, Dr. Sue Whitney, PT, PhD, NCS, ATC, FAPTA, leadership spent the Retreat discussing the future of NCPTA and the direction the association needs to go to best serve membership and patients.
In the fall of 2017 the NCPTA sent a survey to all PTs and PTAs in North Carolina. Responses were received from over 2,000 PTs, PTAs, and students. The data collected formed the basis for formulating a new strategic plan.
In the coming months, you’ll see more information about the NCPTA’s new strategic plan. The five areas identified by leadership for strategic goals were: Education, Communication, Collaboration, Legislative and Payment Advocacy, and Membership Engagement.These five areas mirror the feedback received from the survey.
A task force has been appointed by the BOD to collate the information generated from the retreat into a comprehensive document that will be distributed to all members following March 24th board meeting.
President Kyle Covington said, “The NCPTA is setting big goals that will be challenging to achieve but we are confident that if we work towards these goals we can create the best possible member run organization possible. However, reaching these goals will not be possible without the efforts, involvement, and engagement of members.”
