The Young Professionals Committee was created by the NATA as part of the Involve & Evolve initiative. The committee represents the young professional, athletic trainers 35 y/o or younger, who make up nearly 70% of the membership. The committee is charged with the task of creating initiatives and programs that will directly impact young professional members. These initiatives and programs will stem from the young professionals interests, needs and concerns that will help build the foundation of the committee. Additionally, the Young Professionals Committee will often collaborate with other NATA committees to help serve the entire athletic training profession.
The District 2 Representative to the NATA Young Professionals Committee is Bridget Spooner from Pennsylvania.
