EPC & CAC Awards

Early Professionals’ Distinction Award &

Career Advancement Committee Professional Distinction Award

These are the newest awards given by SEATA.  Formerly known as the “Young Professionals’ Distinction Award”, two new awards have been created to reflect the division of Early Professionals and Career Advancing Professionals. The awards are designed to recognize one early professional and one career advancing professional that have positively impacted the athletic training profession at the state and district level.  This award is unique to District IX young professionals and explores the depth and breadth of character, service, and professionalism.  An award, including complimentary basic registration for the SEATA Clinical Symposium and Members' Meeting, goes to each recipient.
