In September, NATA members will vote to determine who will be the next NATA president. Vying to become NATA’s 14th president are Kathy Dieringer, EdD, ATC, LAT, and Tory Lindley, MA, ATC. NATA 2017 members had the opportunity to get to know the 2018 presidential candidates during Face Time ’17, from 9:15 to 10:15 a.m. Wednesday, June 28, in the George R. Brown Convention Center, General Assembly C.

During Face Time ’17, Dieringer and Lindley shared their goals for NATA and the athletic training profession as well as answer questions from members. The event was broadcasted through Facebook Live, and the video is below.


You can read a Q&A from each candidate in the July NATA News.
