Explanatory Note: Beginning his term of office, President David Matthews appointed an ad hoc committee to work toward development of a code of professional ethics for the Society. (The Society may eventually wish to make this a standing committee.) Professor Earle Zeigler (Univ. of Western Ontario) was appointed chairperson, and Professors Joy DeSensi (Univ. of Tennessee) and Pat Galasso (Univ. of Windsor) were appointed to this committee as well. This is intended to be a 2-year project, and the present report is considered a draft statement (progress report) to be examined by the Executive Committee in the fall of 1988. This draft report, if tentatively approved, would then be made available to all members through our regular publications in adequate time for foil reaction including recommendations and suggestions for change. The ad hoc Ethics Committee would consider all responses and issue a final report in 1990 for consideration by the Executive Committee and, we hope, subsequent ratification by the membership at its annual business meeting.

The profession of athletic training has not identified and explicitly articulated shared professional values (PV). Shared PV are the seeds of professionalism, and deeply rooted motivators of professional action which support the social contract through self-regulation. The purpose of this exploratory study was to: (1) discover shared PV in athletic training, (2) examine how important PV are to the National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA) membership, and (3) how important is it for our association to explicitly articulate professional values. This study found that truth/honesty, integrity, and respect are significant athletic training PV. PV are important (96.8%), and it is important for the association to explicitly articulate PV (96.5%). The declaration of shared PV will promote values-based behaviors and internally motivate a duty to uphold the legal, ethical, and regulatory standards of the profession. Dedication to our professional responsibilities will sustain the social contract and encourage public trust.
