Task Forces

A task force is a group of individuals appointed by the ACAPT Board of Directors to complete a specific charge or objective of interest to the enterprise of academic physical therapy.

Task forces are typically composed of ACAPT members, but may include representation from other communities of interest. An ACAPT Board member is assigned as a liaison to each task force.  APTA Staff and/or a consultant could be asked to serve on or assist with an ACAPT task force, as needed. The board appoints the task force chairs. Chairs organize the work, lead and record meeting notes and submit reports to the ACAPT Board.

Task forces complete their work after sending a report to the ACAPT Board of Directors on their findings with recommendations. The Board may support and accept any or all of the recommendations.  The Board may also choose to table, take no action or edit the recommendations.

Apply for new task forces under each of ACAPT's upcoming Institutes.  There are twelve (12) new task forces ranging from admissions and simulation to career pathways and research - with 100+ open positions.
