District Secretary

Lori Bristow, MEd, LAT, ATC

District Treasurer

Ray Davis, MSS LAT ATC

Education: BS Ed degree at Western Carolina University, 1984 and MSS degree at The US Sports Academy in Mobile, AL, 1986.


Ray is a native of Greensboro and currently resides in McLeansville, NC.  He has been a member of the NATA since 1981.   His work experiences include; UNC Charlotte, US Football League, Washington & Lee University, the Harlem Globetrotters, Wake County, Edenton-Chowan & Guilford County Public Schools, NC Coaches Association East/West All-Stars & the NC Shrine Bowl Team.  His hobbies include swimming, fishing, hunting and traveling.

He has served the North Carolina Athletic Trainers Association membership as treasurer by election since 1998.  Ray has had extensive experience in managing budgets and financial expenditures through previous employed and volunteered positions.  His duties as treasurer involved but are not limited too; creating budgets, managing annual meeting and student symposium expenditures, maximizing financial accounts, auditing documents, preparing statements for taxes, and filing quarterly lobbying documents etc.  The NCATA treasurer's position evolved into a vital relationship with the NATA and District III through billing, governmental affairs and public relation influences.  In 2011, he was instrumental in changing the NCATA’s tax status from a 501 (c) (3) to a (c) (6) organization.  The coming year will be a major challenge, as he finalizes the NCATA’s treasurer position and becomes the MAATA treasurer. 
It is my feeling that the MAATA District III must maintain its goals in representing all members.  As your treasurer I will work to maintain the interests of all MAATA District III membership as I have with the NCATA.
