2018 President’s Message

Dear NSATA Membership,

Thank you for visiting the NSATA Summer Education Conference website. The NSATA Executive Board is excited about this year’s Summer Education Conference. I want to thank the Nebraska Sports Concussion Network and CHI Health – St. Elizabeth for sponsoring this year’s event. With their sponsorship, we are able to host this year’s event at the Lincoln Cornhusker Marriott Hotel, which is a great venue to host the education program and the Hall of Fame Banquet all in one place.

A lot of work, from multiple committees, has gone into making this event possible. We have a great education program scheduled with several outside speakers. Our programing includes presentations and a panel discussion on helmet sensors, concussions, and the NFL concussion protocol. We will also have sessions related to AT regulation, which is fitting since we are hosting the meeting in the Capital City.

A big feature of this year’s event is the Hall of Fame Banquet. We will induct four new members into the NSATA Hall of Fame. These individuals have made a great impact on the profession and the association and we are grateful for their contributions. We will also be honoring the past Hall of Fame inductees with a ring to celebrate their membership in the NSATA Hall of Fame. We will honor the George Sullivan Athletic Trainer of the Year, NSATA Years of Service, and NSATA Scholarship winners at the event. Please consider attending the event to help us celebrate the accomplishments of all of our award winners and socializing with colleagues and friends. If you register for the conference, your registration fee includes attendance at the Hall of Fame Banquet.

We look forward to seeing you in Lincoln!

Michael Sloup, ATC
NSATA President
