Dear PT's and PTA's,
As a supporter of the Tennessee Physical Therapy PAC you are assisting the TPTA as an advocate for our profession in the Tennessee legislature. This investment ensures that the physical therapy profession has a voice in any health care debates that influences your practice or profession on a daily basis. We will need your financial support as we continue to fight efforts regarding our practice act, prevention of referral for profit (RFP) arrangements, and Direct Access, just to name a few. In addition to your financial support we also need your vocal support and involvement. Nationally, less than 9% of the APTA membership supports PAC contributions and it is even less than that in the state of Tennessee. Other health care professions in our state far exceed our efforts when it comes to PAC fundraising. That is why I am asking for your help. Please take the time to support the TPT-PAC. It is not how much you give but that ALL of us contribute to achieve positive results on our legislative issues and on election day. Too much is at stake to sit on the sidelines during this election year. Please refer to the PAC form for the various levels of giving. If every PT and PTA would simply contribute a minimum of 1 hour of their pay/month, we would reach our goals and abilities for the PAC. Make your personal checks to TPT-PAC and send to the TPT-PAC treasurer, Sarah Suddarth Byrd, or use the convenient credit card form of payment to make installment payments to your choosing.
Thank you in advance for your support!
- Sarah Suddarth Byrd, PT,DPT TPT-PAC President
