Regional & State Representatives

A State/U.S. Territory Representative serves as a local volunteer contact for the Academy of Pelvic Health Physical Therapy members in their state to communicate information regarding member and state affairs. The State Representative is often a highly active member who attends the Academy events and APTA conferences.

If you are interested in joining a study group in your state or want to ask a state-specific question, please click the envelope button of your state rep to send them an email. If you have technical or membership login issues, please contact our office staff.

All state representatives report to the Academy’s Regional Representatives who report to the Academy’s Membership Committee Chair, Ashley Watts.
