Goals and Responsibilities
The goal of the HATA Public Relations Committee is to reach those individuals and organizations that can help make a difference for athletic trainers when it comes to legislation, employment and public health. We organize and/or publicize grassroots activities, along with media coverage to improve the awareness and position of the profession.
The PR Committee utilizes the toolkit provided by the NATA in order to educate stakeholders on the importance and value of athletic trainers to athletes, patients, clients and the public. The 2012 PR Toolkit can be found here (http://www.nata.org/sites/default/files/2012_NATA_toolkit.pdf). Some of these activities take less than 30 minutes to complete. Therefore, it is easy to get involved.
Typically, the busiest time of year for the PR Committee will be in March, which is National Athletic Training Month (NATM). Please refer to NATM to-do list taken from NATA.org, which describes some responsibilities and goals for the PR Committee below.
