The MoATA Governmental Affairs committee is pleased to announce the dates for the Capitol Visit Days for the upcoming 2016 legislative session in Jefferson City. These days are important for our membership to discuss the profession of Athletic Training and the value of our profession within the healthcare system. We have selected two dates for academic programs to bring their athletic training students to Jefferson City for the valuable experience of meeting with their representatives about the profession.
- January 26th – Licensed Athletic Trainers
- February 23rd – AT Program Involvement Day (Licensed Athletic Trainers encouraged to attend)
- March 16th – AT Program Involvement Day (Licensed Athletic Trainers encouraged to attend)
- April 13th – Licensed Athletic Trainers
