Student Leadership Application (October 15th – November 26th, 2018)
The 2018-2019 Student Leadership Committee is very excited for the upcoming year! Since starting our term in July, we have been able to assign each committee member to a fellow FWATA committee as student liaisons, such as Ethnic Diversity Advisory (EDAC), Public Relations, and Young Professionals committees. We have received support from FWATA managing board, state managing boards, and even more athletic trainers around the district. Our goal is to provide greater opportunities for our students to network and stay involved in the profession. Committees benefit from our student liaisons by having a student’s perspective available during conference calls. There are big things to come!
The application for the 2019-2020 Student Leadership Committee is live as of Monday, October 15th, 2018. The application includes general student information (e.g. institution, year in program, GPA), a couple essay questions, and requires a letter of recommendation from your athletic training program director. The deadline for applications is November 26th, 2018. An opportunity to shadow a committee conference call is in the works. More information can be found in the brochure, and please feel free to email any questions or concerns to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’d also like to encourage students to not only apply for the FWATA SLC, but the NATA Student Leadership Committee as well. More information can be found on their page; Their application is open from October 8th to November 25th, 2018.
Thank you again for your interest and support in the Student Leadership Committee. Our inbox is always open; Don’t be shy to connect with us!
