Members of the Alabama Board of Physical Therapy are appointed for staggered terms of five years each, so that one member's term expires each year.  Members of the board are appointed by the Governor from a list of five person nominated for each place on the board by current licensees and certified to the Governor by the Board.

Qualifications for nominees are: (1) Be a resident and citizen of the state; (2) Have practiced physical therapy within the State of Alabama for three years preceding his or her appointment; (3) Shall have no disciplinary action against their license for the three years preceding his or her appointment; and (4) must provide written, signed consent to serve.

The Board is currently accepting nominations of current licensees who reside in the northern section of the state to fill one Physical Therapist Assistant position on the board currently filled by Dillard Nathan McGriff, PTA who is eligible for reappointment.  Only physical therapists and physical therapists assistants holding a current license in Alabama are allowed to nominate licensees and vote to select five names for the position to be certified to the Governor.

Nomination, which must include a written, signed consent-to-serve letter from each nominee, must be mailed to the Board's office to be received no later than March 9, 2018.  Late nominations will not be accepted.

In the event five nominations are not received prior to the March 9, 2018 deadline, the board will request nominations from the state-at-large to be received in the board's office no later than April 9, 2018.  Nominations will be accepted from the floor during the Board's election meeting on April 21, 2018.  Any person nominated from the floor must provide the Board with written, signed consent-to-serve letter or be present to provide the consent-to serve verbally.
