About the Young Professionals' Committee (YPC):
(From the NATA YPC website)
The YPC was created to address issues of athletic trainers who are in the first 12 years after initial certification/licensure. It develops strategies to increase recruitment, retention, volunteer involvement and convention attendance among young athletic training professionals. The YPC provides programs, activities and educational opportunities to address young professional needs. The committee also promotes professional socialization of young professionals.

New York Young Professionals Subcommittees:
We creating a subcommittee for each Region in the state to better target the needs of the individual regions. YP programming events can be social, volunteering opportunities, job skills workshops, or nearly anything you think would be a good opportunity to bring YPs together!
