The Commission consists of BOC certified athletic training representatives, and a university administrator representative, from institutions offering athletic training programs. The Commission also includes a designated representative from each of the sponsoring organizations, as well as one public member. The current leadership, which consists of outstanding and well-respected individuals including athletic training professionals, institution administrators, and physicians, is defined below. The athletic trainers serving on the commission are self-nominated. All nominations are then reviewed by the Nominating Committee, and then a slate of candidates is put forward for a vote by the accredited programs. Each program is allowed one vote. Physician representatives are appointed by their respective professional associations, and the public member is selected by the Commission through a national search and application process.
There are no full-time members of the Commission; all Commissioners are volunteers, and there are four full-time office staff members.
