The symposium was recieved very well, and we were very pleased with the ratings and responses we received from the participants. 

Some of the Comments: 
"A great group of speakers- the best in the field in this area!"
"I'd be very interested in seeing this become an annual event."
"Nice to have an informative one day seminar/symposium in a local area. Nice Job!"
"Great combo of lectures, glad to have been a part of the 1st Symposium- look forward to next year."
"It was fun.  I like the casualness. All speakers should be required to strip down during their speech!!!"
"Excellent idea for South Jersey."
"Very well run, all speakers were very knowedgeable and down to earth.  Good mix of topics.  Great food!"
"I thought this was a very good idea, it was very informative, but in a relaxed environment."

Although things went well, there was room for improvement. 
Based on your comments we will work on the following: 
Physical Therapists need CEU's too.  Blame this one on the Director.  I didn't realize PT's were required to obtain CEU's.  I will get with the NJ APTA to resolve this problem for 2000.
Stick to the Schedule. One of the problems here was I didn't allow time for the changeovers.  It takes time to conclude registration and begin the first speaker, to change speakers, to begin after lunch concludes, etc.  Chalk it up as a lesson learned.  We will have better time management next year.
Allow mini breaks between speakers. We will allow 5 minutes as we switch speakers in 2000.
Difficulty hearing some speakers. We had a couple microphone problems with a few of the speakers.  This will be a top priority for next year.
Have outlines for every speaker's presentation.  This was a priority and I did emphasize this to each speaker.  We did have excellent outlines for all but a couple presentations.  But I can only do so much here, if a speaker doesn't get me an outline ... there's not much I can do.  But we will re-emphasize this to the speakers next year.
Consider having fewer speakers talk longer.  This will be taken into consideration, but having more topics covered has its merits also.
Use both sides of the buffet table. Good point, will do.
We need coffee after lunch. Food services cleared the coffee and tea away after the symposium started.  We will make sure it remains next year for the entire symposium.



Sports Medicine Symposium 
Richard Stockton College 
Saturday, July 17th (10 AM) 
A-Wing Lecture Hall 
Last Updated 7/7/99 
This site will be updated frequently- 
so check back often.

We are running a pilot symposium directed toward certified athletic trainers and physical therapists, however, PTA's and students are welcome.  The goal is to provide an informative session on timely sports medicine topics, in a casual environment.  Each presentation will be limited to 35-40 minutes followed by a brief question and answer period. We will bring in a mix of orthopedists, athletic trainers, and physical therapists as speakers. 

It is our belief that the symposium fills a need in the Southern New Jersey area.  If we get a decent amount of interest and we find it does fill a need through attendance, then we will look to make the symposium a yearly event. 

This first symposium will be a skeleton format, or there won't be a whole lot of extras. We are focusing on some quality content, in a laid-back, stress free format.  The bare essentials. 

The symposium will begin at 10:00 am and run for 5 hours.  The cost will be $25.  Brochures were mailed on June 16th & 17th.  The deadline for registration is Monday July 12th.  Limited walk-in registration will be available. 

For the ATC's: We are recognized by the NATA Board of Certification to offer continuing education for certified athletic trainers.  A NATABOC report of attendance will be issued for .5 CEU's.  A Special Note for High School Athletic Trainers. 

Directions:  Go to parking lot #1 and proceed to A-wing.

Note for High School Athletic Trainers.It was my sincere intention to have a high school ATC present at the symposium.  However, I was 0-14 in my attempts to secure a speaker, and then I ran out of time.  Everyone was either unavailable, declined, or didn't respond to the invitation.  July 17th must be the state day for all high school ATC's to vacation or attend weddings:)
