    Becoming a MATA Member

Attention Athletic Trainers – There are two routes to becoming an MATA member:

1.  Join the National Athletic Trainers Association (NATA)
2.  Join the state organization only by completing the MATA online application below 

NATA Members:
If you maintain your NATA membership AND your address of record is located in Maryland, a portion of your national membership dues is funneled down to the state level. This makes you a dues paying member of the state organization, Maryland Athletic Trainers' Association (MATA).

**If you currently work in the state of Maryland but your address of record with the NATA is in a different state, your dues money is funneled down to that state. This makes you a member of that state’s organization not Maryland. If you would also like to join the Maryland Athletic Trainers' Association (MATA), please follow the directions below to download the form, fill it out and submit it. You will be asked to submit MATA dues separately. 

Join State Membership Only / Non-NATA Members:
For those who no longer pay NATA dues but would like to join or retain Maryland Athletic Trainers' Association (MATA) membership, please submit the online application below and indicate that you are not a NATA member. Once you have submitted this form, you will be asked to submit payment to the MATA for membership. Once payment is received, you will be granted access to the MATA List Serv, the MATA website, and receive legislative and news updates from Executive Council.
