Member Benefits - Government Affairs/Advocacy
NATA lobbies for you both at the federal and state government levels. Federally, we have on-the-ground representatives that carry the athletic training message to members of Congress and the Administration. In state legislatures, NATA supports the efforts of state associations by providing financial grants and expert advice. The collective voice of 30,000+ members carries more weight than an individual member or even a group of members. Washington and state capitals are teeming with health care interests and in order to be heard and advance the profession, ATs must speak collectively.
