Organizational Resilience: How to Manage Ambiguity and Change

This is primarily geared toward leaders who are responsible for creating change and managing others through the change process.  Based on strong scientific evidence, leaders will gain practical skills such as focusing on strengths vs weaknesses, how to use appreciative inquiry processes, and how to establish clear guidelines for success to use immediately in
supporting their teams.

Call for Nominations

Spring Elections will be held the week before the state conference.  We have 2 open positions.  Have you considered becoming more involved?  Would you like to champion Physical Therapy Private Practice in our state?

Announcing Our New Chair

In the Fall of 2016, Amy Snyder was elected to the Private Practice Sections Board of Directors.  Following that, she resigned from her position of Chair from the PPSIG.  The Board appointed Brett Roberts to take over this position.  She will remain on as a Director until the April elections.

"Helping to start and grow the PPSIG has been a joy and an honor.  I believe that the collaboration of physical therapy business leaders in our state not only helps to elevate each of our individual practices, but also directly impacts the wellness of our communities.  PT's are facing both challenges and opportunities.  As the US Healthcare system continues to change and evolve, we must take our place as primary care providers of neuromusculoskeletal care. I hope that I will be able to champion these values and our practices in my new role.  Many thanks for all of the support.  See you at conference!"

– Amy
