2019 CAATE Commissioner Election Now Live!

The CAATE is excited to commence with the election of the Commissioner representing Post-Professional Residency Athletic Training Programs. There are two candidates available for this position. Applicants had to have experience as a clinician within a Post-Professional Residency Athletic Training Program. Each CAATE accredited Athletic Training program is given one (1) vote towards each Commissioner vacancy. While access to the ballot is available only through the Program Director, the Commission strongly encourages institutions/programs to solicit input from all of their stakeholders in considering candidates for selection.

The Program Director will be the voting member of their respective programs, however, the CAATE recommends that the opinion of all program stakeholders, such as preceptors and clinicians, be solicited by the Program Director prior to casting the program’s ballot. When voting, program directors will be directed to input their program school code which can be accessed in the program’s profile within eAccreditation.

The Candidates:

Forrest Pecha, MS, LAT, ATC

Kevin J. Herod, MS, ATC, SCAT

The electronic ballot will remain open until June 17, 2019. The ballot can be accessed here. Click the link provided below to review the candidates’ qualifications.
