As the summer comes to a close, we come up on our annual elections for new Illinois Athletic Trainers Association Board of Directors members. We are seeking enthusiastic athletic trainers that want to influence their profession at the local level. As you have seen over the last few years, the efforts that the BOD puts forth can directly affect our ability to perform our duties in the state and to ensure we are progressing the profession forward, and motivated candidates are needed to continue this trend. The field of athletic training is continuing to evolve, and we hope you will consider running for one of these positions.
