IATA Governmental Affairs Committee
"Join Us Campaign"
About the "Join Us Campaign"
The Governmental Affairs Committee is challenging each IATA athletic trainer to invite at least one, if not all three, of their appointed district legislators, to an event or tour of their workplace this fall and winter.
Our goal is to have all legislator visits take place from September to December, so it is important to start planning and getting those invitations out. The reason behind this is to have a cohesive state effort which will demonstrate a strong presence within the Capitol.
These visits will take place at your workplace, whether that be a high school, college, classroom, military base, industrial warehouse, etc. Visits will ideally include a tour of your athletic training facility/clinic and when able, an intimate perspective to a game, ceremony, presentation, etc.
We want to strengthen our relationships with our legislators and continue to educate on the nuances and uniqueness of our athletic training profession. These visits will give them a closer look into the world of athletic training.
