President's Message:

August 17, 2021 

I hope all is well with each of you! After a brief recess your ALATA leadership is back and hard at work making our profession better in Alabama and serving you.


Our major projects recently have been creating a few new committees: The Early Career Professional Committee (ECPC) for Athletic Trainers who have been certified for less than 6 years, and the Career Advancement Committee (CAC) for ATs who have been certified for 7-12 years. If you fall into either of these criteria and would like to be involved, contact us and we will find the best fit for you!


We are also in the planning stages of our annual Clinical Symposium and Members Meeting. If you have not yet completed our survey the link is below. We are using this survey to best address the wants and needs of our members. The survey will close on August 31, 2021, at midnight.


Like to 2022 ALATA CSMM Survey -


Do not forget to follow ALATA on our various social media accounts.

Your President,


2021 ALATA CSMM in Gulf Shores CEUs:

Everyone who attended the CSMM in person or virtually would have gotten an email with links to the recordings and surveys to complete to get their CEU Certificates. These emails go to the email that was used in the registration process. Some of these emails were lost in “junk” folders or quarantined by institutional firewalls. If you did not receive this email on June 8th or it’s follow-up on July 26th, please contact me directly at I will then forward you to the appropriate individuals to help get you your CEU certificates.
