Board of Directors Election This Fall!

The Nominating Committee of the BOC is seeking applications from Athletic Trainers interested in serving as an Athletic Trainer Director on the Board of Directors. This year Certified Athletic Trainers will elect 2 individuals to the Board. As in past years, we have highlighted areas the board feels are underrepresented. The board especially encourages applications from ATs:

  • who are clinicians, in any setting
  • of all races and ethnicities
  • who demonstrate advocacy for the profession of athletic training while understanding the current and future trends and changes in the greater healthcare industry that may impact it
  • with an entrepreneurial spirit who have an informed understanding of the profession across healthcare settings, whether traditional or emerging
The Nominating Committee will weigh these areas, as well as the qualifications found in the job description, in their deliberations as they prepare the slate of candidates for the election.

If you are interested in submitting your name as a potential candidate, please visit the BOC website. The application, bylaws, election guidelines and a detailed job description outlining the qualifications, responsibilities and time commitment can be found on the Board of Directors page.

Applications, résumés and additional information will be reviewed by the Nominating Committee. The Nominating Committee will select ATs to interview and then conduct interviews via phone to select the individuals who will be placed on the election ballot that will be presented to ATs at large.
