ATSNJ's 39th Annual Conference Call for Proposals

Annual Meeting Badge

Strength of the Conference

The ATSNJ Annual Conference and Business Meeting provides a magnificent occasion for athletic training to learn about topics whose objectives are to enhance a clinician’s contemporary practice.  The conference also provides abundant opportunities for professionals to network to share ideas about the past, current and future aspects of the society and athletic training profession.  Historically, this conference has been used as a forum to promote the practice of athletic training within New Jersey, as well as, at the regional and national levels.  The ATSNJ Conference Committee encourages all New Jersey athletic trainers to support and attend their state conference not only to gain CEUs, but to also demonstrate our strength as athletic trainers to other entities within the state. 


Value of Presenting

It is vital to the state of the ATSNJ and the profession that fellow clinicians (athletic trainers, physicians, etc) share their expertise with athletic trainers and other healthcare professionals that attend the ATSNJ Annual Conference and Business Meeting.  Presenters are crucial to the continued evolution of clinical practice, because without your presentation athletic trainers and other healthcare professionals may not be able to augment their practice to coincide with current trends in healthcare.  Therefore, the ATSNJ Conference Committee highly encourages everyone to share their expertise by submitting a presentation proposal using the following link: Submit Proposals Here. As Mike Goldenberg has said, “if not you, then who?”
