A letter from the Secretary

Dear ALATA Members,

I am writing to inform you all that I will be resigning as the Alabama Athletic Trainers’ Association Secretary effective September 7, 2010.   I have taken a job in Georgia and begin my duties this month.   I hate that I am leaving the Council at this time; however, this is a great opportunity.  Thank you all for allowing me to serve as your ALATA Secretary.  I have enjoyed the relationships that I have gained over the past year and hope to maintain them.  I look forward to seeing you all at national and district functions.  Thank you all again for your support.

Sincerely,

Brittany Wilkes, MAE, ATC, LAT
