Core Ambassadors (CAs) are the link between the APTA Student Assembly Board of Directors and SPTs and SPTAs of their respective state. CAs are responsible for implementing strategies and initiatives to promote engagement of students. Their goal is to create awareness of advocacy efforts at state and national levels and provide students with opportunities to increase involvement within the APTA. CAs communicate and develop student initiatives with their state association to enhance the student experience.
