APMA State Advocacy Forum 2017 (in Utah)

12 May 2017 - 13 May 2017

The APMA State Advocacy Forum is a biennial conference that provides an opportunity for state association leaders and representatives to discuss ongoing state legislative issues. The 2017 State Advocacy Forum will be held May 12–13 in Salt Lake City. This location was selected in recognition of the Utah Podiatric Medical Association’s recent and continuing state legislative advocacy initiatives. 

APMA and the state components share the costs of this conference. APMA provides meals and covers the hotel costs of up to two attendees from each state, while the state component covers the attendees’ transportation costs.

Young Physician Scholarship Application

APMA continues to encourage young physicians to advocate on the federal, state, and local levels. State component societies have been asked to consider sending young physicians to represent the state component at the forum. Understanding the value of young physicians as the future of our profession and seeking to engage highly qualified and passionate members, the APMA Center for Professional Advocacy (CPA) will provide scholarships for up to three (3) young physicians to attend the forum.

Apply for the Young Physician Scholarship by March 31, 2017.
