2022 Virtual Spring Conference & Leadership Forum

Thank you to all who attended the 2022 Virtual Spring Conference & Leadership Forum, March 21-23. We hope you will join us later this year at AMRPA's 20th Annual Fall Educational Conference & Expo being held in person October 9-12, 2022 at the Hilton Union Station Hotel in St. Louis, Missouri.


The annual AMRPA Spring Conference offers medical rehabilitation professionals a chance to hear from and speak to federal agency officials, members of Congress, and other Washington, DC influencers who make critical decisions every day about our industry. With the continued impact of COVID-19, participating in this year's Spring Conference & Leadership Forum is more critical than ever.  After hearing from industry leaders, the virtual Leadership Forum will provide everything you need to know about the impact of legislation and regulations on medical rehabilitation, an update on 2022 AMRPA policy priorities, and review how to best utilize your congressional meetings on behalf of the industry and AMRPA.
