Thank you for visiting the Far West Student Leadership Committee page.  Please review the following information regarding student leadership responsibilities.

The mission of the Far West Student Leadership Committee is to identify and address any and all issues and concerns pertinent to athletic training students in the collegiate and university setting.

 The role the FWSLC plays in regards to FWATA & District 8:

  • It allows students to get involved with the planning and execution of the annual District 8 meeting, including coordinating the student leadership breakfast and speakers for the student sessions

The FWSLC is made up of the FWSLC Chair (President), Vice Chair, Secretary, and three Sub-committee Chairs. All positions (expect the Chair) are elected amongst the members of the committee and are available to all members.

  • Student Outreach: In-charge of social media and getting students throughout the district informed and involved through social media or other forms of communication with athletic training programs
