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 complete in their entirety. Any category answered with “See Attached Resume” will be treated as a non-answer. Please familiarize yourself with what is being requested.

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.
