CAPITOL HILL DAY will take place this year on Wednesday, March 23rd, 2016.
How can you help?
We want to give TATS members a chance to share their story of athletic training to the leaders of our state. We hope to meet with 12 - 15 legislators and will have talking points prepared for you to discuss with our Tennessee representatives, including discussing the importance of athlete safety across the nation.
Why do you need to help?
The Tennessee State Legislators want to hear from all of their constituents about issues important to them. The TATS Leadership alone cannot have nearly the impact that you can have with your representative. We want to take some small steps this year to improve participation by getting at least 5 people from each division of the state (East, Middle, & West TN) to join the TATS Leadership as we meet with State Legislators to discuss the future of our profession in Tennessee.
What happens at Day on the Hill?
You won't have anything to worry about on that day other than talking with your representatives. We will meet at 8:30am at Puckett's Grocery to talk with our TATS legislative liaison and discuss talking points for the day. Meetings with legislators will be pre-arranged for that day. At 9:30am we will walk to Capitol Hill and begin meetings until around 1pm.
