Alabama Board of Athletic Trainers Election

Please note that there will be two position vacancies on the Alabama Board of Athletic Trainers effective 12/31/17.  Both positions are to be held by Alabama-licensed athletic trainers, one of whom must also be an Alabama-licensed physical therapist. Nominations are limited to Alabama-licensed athletic trainers who meet the preceding criteria, are citizens of the United States, and have acted as athletic trainers for three years within this state immediately preceding appointment.  Only athletic trainers currently licensed by the Alabama Board of Athletic Trainers are able to nominate qualified athletic trainers meeting the above requirements, and only licensed athletic trainers are able to vote.  Furthermore, since these are Board positions rather than ALATA positions, athletic trainers do not have to be a member of ALATA to nominate, be nominated, or vote.

ALATA is conducting this election on behalf of the Alabama Board of Athletic Trainers; therefore, please email your nominations to ALATA Secretary Robb Hensarling alatasec@gmail.com.  You may nominate one person for each position.   If you are nominating someone, please indicate the Board position and provide their full name and their place of employment so that their eligibility and acceptance of the nomination can be verified.  Please provide your full name and Alabama license number as well.  Please email nominations by April 30, 2017.  Nominations will close on April 30, 2017, at midnight if at least two qualified persons are nominated.  ALATA reserves the right to reopen nominations if at least one qualified person for each position is not nominated.  Voting for this election will be held only during the ALATA Annual Symposium on June 2nd, 2017, at 4:30 PM.  Eligible voters should make plans to attend and vote.
