Due to unforeseen circumstances, the original project to develop a walk through NSATA history was put on hold. The goal is to complete this project by the next Hall of Fame year in 2021. The first step in this is to get the banners and posters made. The banners will be stand up banners that retract into carrying cases and they will have photos and years on them to set up in between decades of memorabilia and posters presenting significant dates in athletic training history in Nebraska. The posters will be posters mounted on PVC so they will be durable enough to use from year to year. The project designs will be submitted to the executive board prior to printing.

District Meeting we would like to find a fun promotional item to have available at the meeting since it is in Nebraska again.

Promotional items for Legislators: Mini first aid kits, water bottles, towels, pens, pencils, notpads. Something small to highlight NSATA to the legislators. (These are also the items we could use for the district meeting)

This symposium has the most up-to-date information available from a national perspective. The agenda reflects what is working with TPR across the country, from payor advocacy and engagement to regulatory and GAC updates. The NATA will also be rolling out their new resources for states to use. The NSATA sent Danielle Kleber to this symposium in 2016.

This video will be completed in time for the 2021 Hall of Fame induction during the State Education Conference and will be shown continually where the Hall of Fame plaques will be housed.

1500.00
Scholarships and Research Grants– Scholarships x3 – $1500
– Research Grants x2 – $1000

This is the exact same amounts that were used for this years budget. Our hope is to get more individuals applying so that the scholarship and research grants are more competitive. With the first year research grant we had a great number of applicants.

2500.00
Governmental Affairs– Legislative Boot Camp. We would like to have a legislative boot camp to help prepare us for the legislative session in 2021 where we are planning to drop the updated practice act. – 1500
– Lobbyist. $20,000 base + $10,000 for additional if needed during legislative session – $30,000
– Marketing and Branding for legislator and public education. – $2,000
– Expert Testimony. We may need to have experts come in to testify during legislative hearings. Money would cover professional fees, travel, r/b. This is not typically covered by legislative grant. – $3,000
– Mileage/Parking during hearings – $3500
– Legislative meals (8 meals at $80 each- 4 people/$20 per person) – 640
– GAC Committee Meals- not covered by GAC grant – 750

As you are aware, the NSATA is in the midst of modernizing it’s practice act. We have submitted an application for an NATA discretionary grant. We are requesting $30,000 for the grant and would hope for around $25,000 in a normal year. If we get this, it would mean that the NSATA would be responsible for roughly $16,000. However, I would ask the NSATA Finance Committee and board to approve the full amount so that we are not tied to the NATA for funding, as this years awards may be questionable due to the pandemic. As you know, the NSATA has earmarked funds for GAC for the past 15 years for legislative actions. It has been this strategy that has allowed us to receive close to $60,000 from the NATA during that time, as well as place us in the financial position that we are in. Time and time again, we have utilized legislative battles to justify the request of the membership to help provide coverage during the NSAA championship events. We are now in the midst of this and the changes we are seeking in the practice act will benefit the membership in numerous ways.

I have e-mailed a full copy of the application and budget sheet for the application to Eric Smoyer to add to this file.

Please let me know if you have additional questions.

41390.00
Scholarships and Research Grants– Student Research Grants (2 @ $500) – 1000

The 407 Workgroup should be winding down its’ charge by the end of the year. I anticipate several more meetings that may include meals if able to be conducted in-person.

Young Professionals– Social (distancing) gathering-networking – $150
– “Settings” Field Trip-Transportation – $330
– “Settings” Field Trip-Lunch – $100

Social/networking did not happen this last year (District convention was the plan), so those fund were never used. Will try again this year pending status for Covid restrictions.
The “settings” trip is in early planning stages, but I needed to request funds now for use in the spring if it can even happen. The cost estimate is for rental vans. But if numbers are higher, we would possibly have to charge a small fee or find a sponsor to get a bus or more vans. Estimating 2 (10 passenger) rental vans at $140 each. $50 estimated for gas to refuel the vans upon return.
Lunch for the trip would be a simple sandwich/wrap style lunch to keep cost low. Estimating 20 people at $5/person
We have even talked about including other committees or possibly taking it to the district level. But the proposal has not been brought to the board at this time.

580.00
Advertising– Travel expenses – 250.00
– Banners – 250.00

Travel expenses will be for when I need to travel somewhere to meet with a potential big sponsor or take them out to lunch. The Banner will be to hang at state events, conferences, etc. The plan would be that it will show each sponsor and what level they are in with their sponsorship to give those businesses a little more of an incentive to donate because their logo will be visible in a high traffic area like that. The size of banner would depend on amount of sponsorships we get.

500.00
Public Relations– Safety in Football – $3500
– National Athletic Training Month – $500
– Public Education with Legislative Process – $1000
– Travel/Meals – $250

Safety in Football: We utilized helmet stickers this year and will need to start over with ordering next year. We are growing in numbers, this year we have 50 teams signed up. Money will be for stickers, mailings, and thank you gifts. Stickers may be switching to a different material next year. This will cost us more then it has in the past.

NATM: Money will be utilized for things to pass out at MAATA with it being in Nebraska. Also for printings for campaign pictures and for a snapchat filter at MAATA. The Snapchat filter would be around $250.

Public Education: The money will be for printings and mailings to educate the public on the 407 process. We will also order supplies to pass out as needed to assist in helping the 407 process become more public: ie. pens, notepads, highlighters etc.

Travel/meals: Travel and meals for accomplishing the interviews to complete the 40 year celebration video.

With this being the NSATA’s 40th year, as well as trying to update the practice act, I thought why not try to get information out to as what an Athletic Trainer does. The goal is the creation and use of a 30 second commercial to run one time per game (6 times throughout the day) during the NSAA Championship events on NET.

Thousands travel to the NSAA Championships and hear our tag during the games, but how many truly listen and understand? Thousands more actively watch the Championships on TV. We have all seen the Brain Injury commercials that run constantly during the games, why not one specifically for and about the NSATA and Athletic Trainers?

I contacted NET, and what I heard back was that an individual commercial can be run at $500 for each 30 second slot. This is where the $3000/event comes from. $500 for 6 commercials throughout the day.

This is the best time to push forward and get our message out. We as Athletic Trainers have taken on the Concussion crisis, and are now on the front lines of dealing with COVID. Lets step out of the shadows and promote ourselves in the fashion we want to be displayed.

Please contact me with any questions

Scholarships and Research Grants– Student Research Grants (2 @ $500) – 1000

We are requesting the same amount as last year. We received some high quality grants and I think two $500 grants provides some competition, but is still accessible for the majority of students. I would however, request that we can be flexible if we get 3 or 4 that we can “split the pot” potentially to fund more.

– NSATA Student Scholarship (2) – 500

– NSATA High School ATS Scholarship (1) – 250
– NSATA High School ATS Scholarship (2) – 250

The 3 student scholarships are the “normal” ones that are handed out every ear to athletic training students. This year there would be 3 that would be handed out just like in years past.

This year there would be a new high school student scholarship (working on proposal currently) for a total of $500. It could either be broken up into 2x$250 or 1x$500 depending on interest.

Hi NSATA,

I requested a ballpark figure $$ for items. I am going off of Mike Peterson’s prices for past awards–but unsure how many 25 year clocks I will need to order this year until I receive the NATA list serve. I would also like to mail the current backlog of 25 year clocks I inherited with taking over this committee (9) total, and I foresee some possible mailing needs next year in the absence of folks attending the annual education conference. My figures may be way off, but I will record and maintain receipts as I move forward with shipping items to folks.

Any questions, please ask!

Thank you
Becky

Governmental Affairs– Lobbyist Fees- $20,000 base + $10,000 if additional lobbying efforts are needed – 30,000
– Marketing and Branding for legislator and public education – 2,000
– Mileage reimbursement – 3500
– Legislative Meet and Greets ($15-$20 per person maximum of 49 meetings x 3 people per meeting =147 meals) Budget for 100 – 2,000
– GAC Committee Meals – 750
– Student GAC Boot Camp – 500

Starting the 2nd session of the biennium with our bill sitting in General File.
1. Lobbyist fees will be the same as last year. The $10,000 extra will be unlikely but want to be prepared (did not use the $10,000 from last years request either).

2. Marketing and Branding- separate from what the PR may budget for joint events.

3. Mileage- did not use this amount in 2020 but want to have it for those who wish to exercise the option for reimbursement.

4. Legislative Meet and Greets. We know we will have 49 Senators that we will want to target. Will try to have consolidated meetings with multiple attendees which will reduce cost. If food is not an option due to COVID, may look to have some give aways instead as a part of this (budgeted based on meals but would like the flexibility to go away from meals if COVID does not allow). If we can do both then would look to cover expense with this and the marketing/branding request.

GAC Committee Meals- if needed (did not use last year because all meetings were virtual).

GAC Student Boot Camp- Money used for food/beverages/supplies. Engaging students are part of the work plan for this year.

For the Fall Forum and Quiz bowl I would love to provide food. Also, I would love to explore ways for networking between students from different programs after the fall forum. Maybe bowling or another activity where we mix ATCs and students from different programs. The grand total is $550 for all expenses but those of high priority would equal $300. Please let me know if there are any questions.

Secondary Schools– Four Safe Sports School Awards – $600
– Poly Cold immersion tubs (Stock Tanks) – $2000

Secondary Schools Committee would like to request $600 to sponsor/fund four NATA Safe Sports School awards. Each award currently costs $150.

This would allow four schools to apply for funding of their award. This could be given to New awards winners, or at the discretion of the committee could be used to renew and already awarded school.

Poly Tubs:
We would like to sponsor the purchase of cold immersion tubs for smaller schools whose budgets may not be able to provide this item. Depending on the market $2000 will allow us to provide 7-10 of these to schools in need to help prevent and treat heat illnesses.
