Implemented in 2013, the OSPA's Regional PA Membership Contact Program is a simple way to make a connection with PAs who may have similarity in scope of practice, issues which are region in nature, or clarification on practice issues. While most of the time an issue affecting the PA profession is statewide, there are times when something happens that is closer to home. The OSPA now has regional PA contacts throughout the State.

The Time to Reach Out to Your Regional PA Contact:

  • You or your practice have a question or concern, and would like to communicate with someone closer to your practice?
  • You would find value in gathering with Fellow PAs in your region for a meeting or dinner event?
  • As an OSPA member, you would like to discover a volunteer opportunity of your own.
  • You are new to the OSPA - or haven't yet become a member - the Regional Contacts may have answers to your questions.
