NATA Capitol Hill Update
NATA acknowledges the disruption of meetings globally with many district meetings either cancelled or in question. Capitol Hill Day 2020 is 8 weeks away and every day brings new information and actions taken to help curb the spread of the COVID-19 virus. As we continue to work with our partners, NATA will remain vigilant in our efforts to monitor conditions and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization, Capitol Hill, and the event industry community.
Members who register for Capitol Hill Day will have an opportunity to reassess their plans as the event nears. We encourage members to be watchful with us as we navigate through these unprecedented times. NATA will provide additional updates in the coming weeks.

2018 Capitol Hill Day
Over 75 athletic trainers from 31 states ventured to Washington, D.C., for NATA’s annual Capitol Hill Day.
More than 200 meetings with legislators and their staff took place throughout the day to discuss S. 808, the Sports Medicine Licensure Clarity Act, the House version of which (H.R. 302) was passed by Congress in January 2017.
The Capitol Hill Day visits led to 8 new cosponsors for S. 808. In addition, the meetings offered attendees the opportunity to talk one-on-one with members of congress and their staff, educating them on the athletic training profession and issues important to our members.
