'Athletic Trainer' Added to AP Stylebook
from NATA    Share   Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
After more than a decade of perseverance, we learned last week that the Associated Press will include a specific definition of the profession in its Stylebook — the definitive resource and gold standard for media when it comes to proper punctuation and general grammatical style and reference. It will appear in the online version/sports guidelines section in the next few weeks and in the hard copy book in May.

The power of this definition cannot be estimated, especially with regard to our public relations and general communications efforts. We now have a definitive response for media and others should they not reference athletic trainers correctly. We are confident this will change the landscape of the profession and how it is referenced. Thank you to those of you who have helped us champion this effort for the past 10-plus years.
