Program Overview

To: Members of the Mid-America Athletic Trainers’ Association
From: Rusty McKune, ATC | MAATA President

Happy Holidays everyone! I hope that this finds you all doing well. As we enter into the final weeks of 2022, my wish for all of you is that this Holiday Season will allow you to spend time with those who matter most- friends, family and loved ones. My hope for all is that we are all allowed to celebrate memories- those being made and those from years past. And above all, I hope that you are able to find some time to relax, reflect and embrace the blessings in your lives.

Along with this holiday greeting, I also want to share the exciting news that registration for the 2023 meeting is now open! The Annual Meeting and Education Committees have been working extremely hard to develop an opportunity that combines education, networking and good old fashioned fun!

In addition to the information found here, be on the lookout for eblasts and social media posts describing the program and our new event management system through WHOVA. I am confident that you will enjoy not only the appearance but also the features that this platform will provide.

There will be more information shared as we get closer to March. I am looking forward to seeing you at the 2023 MAATA Annual Meeting in La Vista!
