“Being a member of NATA keeps me connected with my profession and gives me an ear and a voice. An ear, because the NATA educational offerings keeps us up to date on the most current science and education that affects our practice, as well as to inform us of the challenges we are facing and how we can stay proactive as a larger body. A voice, because there are so many opportunities to get engaged and network with other professionals through annual meetings, committee work, and other volunteerism. That has been the richest part of my experience with NATA. It is great to be a part of such an active organization that remains fully committed to our growth, both as individuals and as a profession.”

“I am proud to be a member of the only national organization that looks out for our professional interests. Without the support of NATA, our profession, at all levels and settings, would not be what it is today. If I have a professional need, ranging from looking for a job to position statements to the latest research, the first place I look is the NATA Members-Only section. NATA and all its resources have helped enhance the health care I provide to my athletes”.
NATA Membership Justification Letter Templates Available
The NATA Connection and Engagement Committee has developed two justification letter templates that athletic trainers can use when requesting funding support for their NATA membership. One template is designed for clinicians, while the other is designed for those in higher education. The templates can be downloaded and modified to fit your and your employer’s needs.
