Posted on July 29, 2014 | | Leave a comment

NATA will kick off the “Are You Being Counted?” Contest at our 2014 convention in Indianapolis, and it will run through Aug. 31. The goal is to see which district will boast the highest number of athletic training NPIs or the largest increase in athletic training NPIs during the contest period. All members, including students, are encouraged to participate by simply applying for your NPI number online. If you have an NPI, you are already entered for a chance to win! Five winners from each of the winning districts will be selected at random to win convention registration or NATA membership dues for 2015! The application process is painless and only takes a few moments.   Students are included!  Visit http://www.nata.org/NPI for all the contest details, frequently asked questions, more facts about NPI and instructions on how to apply.
