Southeast District (SED)

The Southeast District is composed of Chester, Delaware, Philadelphia, Montgomery, and Bucks counties.

About Us

5countyareamapOur goal is to provide an interactive resource to the membership that encourages communication and professional development. If you have any comments or suggestions for ways in which these pages might better meet the needs of the District, please contact us.

The district has in-person meetings hosted in various locations throughout the year. We do post the schedule here and send out e-alerts/newsletters to our members. The main purpose of the meeting is to convey information from PPTA/APTA and secondarily to provide education. We try hard to keep members updated professionally and clinically. We welcome members and non-members, student members and student non-members and consumers. Please invite someone to come along as their is no charge to attend our meetings. We look forward to meeting you!

Our best advertising and demonstration of the benefit of belonging is our members. Please take the time to personally invite someone to join or re-commit to becoming a valued Member of the PPTA.

Our main means of communication is via email. We urge you to have your email not only updated but able to be released for use. SED gets the email lists from APTA. So, if you update your email address there, we will get the information. To do this, go onto, in the upper right hand corner is “my APTA” tab and then update. When you allow APTA to share your email address, you will automatically receive the SED newsletters and the ballots for elections in the SED and PPTA. Sharing your email address may also allow better communication with colleagues and the community who use our web sites.

If you are not a current SED member and would like to receive our district updates, opt in to receive our future communications.
