2018 TSATA NATA Matching Grant Initiative

March 5th, 2018

You could win FREE SWATA registration OR more!!!

For every $10 in donations you make to the TSATA for the NATA’s GAC matching grant initiative, you will be entered for a drawing to win FREE SWATA registration OR More.* (see details below).

The NATA’s Governmental Affairs Council (GAC) has initiated a legislative grant program that offers to match up to $4,000 of TSATA member donated or generated funds for governmental affairs. To be eligible, funds must be donated by TSATA members, or through events organized and supported by TSATA members. The purpose of the matching grant is to complement the investment of members in their legislative and regulatory efforts. The SWATA Executive Board has graciously granted a FREE SWATA registration for SWATA 2018. OR if wanted, we have arrange to have your registration paid to any regional meeting (ie.,GHATS, AAATA, ETATS, SPATS or etc). OR another choice would be to have a dinner for two with Spanky in New Orleans during the NATA or SWATA in Arlington on us. You Choose!

The TSATA maintains an active legislative agenda annually, keeping the services of Hillco Partners on retainer. Currently the TSATA has expenses nearing $22,000 for our legislative agenda and other services of Hillco Partners. Some of the recent and current issues we are working on include: (a) working with the TEA to recognize the Licensure of Athletic Trainers in Chapter 21 in TEA Code; (b) working with legislators in the upcoming legislative session; (c) updating the administrative rules of our law (d) hosting a “hit the hill” state lobbying and LAT recognition day; (e) continuing to work with the UIL to introduce legislation and guidelines on student-athlete safety measures.
