On behalf of the SWATA Young Professionals Committee, I would like to formally invite you to the 2010 Tailgate Party sponsored by North Texas Orthopedics. We will be in the parking lot of the convention center immediately following the the State Forums on Thursday, July 22, 2010. Hot dogs, hamburgers and have soft drinks will be served while supplies last. BYOB is allowed!!!!

For your entertainment, we will be looking for contestants to play our "Minute to Win it" games and win great prizes. If that doesn't get you pumped up for this event, I have posted a link below that shows the game that David Traylor is scheduled to play. He will be shaking his money maker while playing "Junk in the Trunk", in an attempt to win one of our wonderful prizes. There SHOULD be an athletic trainer available in case he gets hurt.

So please come grab a bite to eat, stay for the entertainment and socialize with your fellow professionals on your way to the Welcome reception at the ballpark.

See you there!!!!

SWATA Symposium Update

The YPC is working on finalizing our part of programing for the annual meeting. The Student Roundtable Discussions, scheduled for Friday afternoon at 4:30, has garnered a great response. There will be ten small-group discussions, each with a panel of Young Professionals and Veterans. It will be a great opportunity to communicate with your future colleagues and foster new relationships. If you are a student or new graduate that has questions about this forum, don't hesitate to contact me. Also, we are still in need of a few Young Professionals to serve on the panels. If you are interested, please contact me at

The second project in the works is a mock-interview and resume builder workshop for students and new graduates. If you are interested in participating in this and gaining this valuable information, again please contact me at

We have been working very hard on this this year to provide career-building and networking opportunities for Young Professionals, and can't wait to see the growth of our organization through you all. We look forward to seeing you this year in Arlington!
