Thank you for your interest in volunteering at the 2014 NATA Annual Meeting & Clinical Symposia! This is a great opportunity to meet and network with athletic training students and athletic trainers while giving back to our profession.

 

Volunteer Sign-Up Information

 

Volunteers must be members of NATA and pre-register for the Annual Meeting to be eligible for reimbursement.

To sign up, you will need (3) things: your NATA member number, your NATA member password, and your badge number (found in your registration confirmation e-mail just below the barcode).

Volunteers who work 10 or more hours are reimbursed for a portion of their base registration fee according to the chart below. Registration fees for Advanced Tracks Seminars, Minicourses and other special events are not reimbursed. Refunds are credited back to the original payer via the method they were received.

 

Volunteer Hours % of Symposia Registration Fee Reimbursed
40 hours & over 100%
30 – 39 hours 75%
20 – 29 hours 50%
10 – 19 hours 25%
Less than 10 hours 0%

 

The need for volunteers in each area varies according to a variety of factors that cannot be accurately predicted. Manpower needs are adjusted onsite according to workflow. Volunteers are credited only with hours they actually work. We regret we cannot guarantee hours. Thank you for understanding that NATA must be a responsible steward of member funds.

Students are allowed to volunteer for all opportunities except Special Topics and Evidence-Based Forums. For Sessions and Minicourses, there must be at least one certified athletic trainer working each event.

 

Dress Code

 

Volunteers should wear business casual attire (khakis, slacks, golf shirts, blouses, sweaters); no jeans or shorts.
