Bill Chisolm Professional Service Award
The Ethnic Diversity Advisory Committee presents the Bill Chisolm Professional Service Award annually since 1994 in an attempt to recognize an individual who has contributed to the development and enhancement of ethnically diverse athletic trainers. The recipient is selected by the committee and is not required to be a member of an underrepresented ethnically diverse population.
- NATA members nominated must be in good standing
- Non-NATA members may be nominated
- Candidates are not required to be a member of an underrepresented ethnically diverse population
Completing the Form
All nomination forms must be typed and complete in their entirety. Incomplete information or forms that are not signed by the sponsor or candidate could delay the nomination process significantly. Any category answered with “See Attached Resume” will be treated as a non-answer.
Familiarize yourself with what is being requested. Candidates are not expected to have experience in all areas and should not feel intimidated by having to leave some parts of the form blank.
Letters of Recommendation
The candidate's application should include two letters of recommendation, one from the nominating party and one from an individual chosen by the candidate.
The nominating party is responsible for ensuring this occurs. Some nominees feel uncomfortable requesting such letters from colleagues. Others prefer to handle letter procurement themselves. With that in mind, we ask that the nominator obtain these letters from the individuals the nominee designates, unless the nominee he/she will do so.
All materials requested, including the nomination form, supporting documentation and letters of recommendation are due to the NATA Ethnic Diversity Advisory Committee by January 1.
The Evaluation Process
The Ethnic Diversity Advisory Committee Honors & Awards Sub-Committee will review completed nomination forms.
Recipient will be notified of the committee's selection in March.
Any NATA member may nominate a candidate for the Bill Chisolm Professional Service Award by completing the nomination form by Feb. 1, 2015.
