2020 Capitol Hill Day Update
NATA has made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Capitol Hill Day event. We always want to take into account the health and safety of our members, and new regulations due to COVID-19 in Washington, DC made it impossible for our selected dates to be a feasible option. Please rest assured that even though we are unable to meet in person this year, NATA’s legislative efforts continue for you. Our government affairs team is hard at work advocating on behalf of the profession and will continue to do so.
We appreciate your willingness to participate in this event, and look forward to seeing you on the other side of this pandemic. In the meantime, stay safe and be well.
Registration for this event is cancelled. All confirmed registrants for this event have been contacted. If you have any questions, please contact us.
If you reserved your hotel room through NATA’s Grand Hyatt housing link, your reservation has been automatically canceled. No further action is needed on your part. If you reserved alternate hotel accommodations, please contact your hotel directly to cancel your reservation.
If you registered for the NATAPAC event, you have two options: request a refund or give your registration fee to NATAPAC as a donation. Please contact us with your choice by May 6.
Since our inception we’ve conducted more than 2,000 legislative meetings with Congressional representatives.
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.
