      Advocacy Means...

      Advocacy is commonly defined as “active support of an idea or cause, especially the act of pleading or arguing for something”. At NAPT we believe advocacy is essential, so much so that we have integrated the concept as a cornerstone of our mission. To us, advocacy means being a pro-active representative for NAPT members in influencing public policy.

      The NAPT Board of Directors has therefore adopted tenets that have been recommended by our Public Policy Committee. These statements, which are reviewed and revised if necessary each year, are intended not only as a way to help our members and potential members understand the general values of the association, they are also intended to inform the public of the principles to which our members are committed.
