2016 AFMTE Annual Business Meeting Held Online

The Alliance for Massage Therapy Education (AFMTE) held its annual business meeting online on July 14, 2016. The purpose of the meeting was to update AFMTE’s members about business and committee work during the previous year.

The meeting agenda included a financial report, election information, updates on AFMTE’s National Teacher Education Standards Project (NTESP), the 2017 Educational Congress, association updates, and committee reports. Attendees also had the opportunity to ask questions and have their concerns addressed.

“The Alliance Board is very pleased with the content of and attendance at the AFMTE Annual Meeting on July 14, 2016,” Stan Dawson, vice president of AFMTE, says. “Our focus this year has been on the NTESP, organizational infrastructure, ongoing committee work, and preparing for the Educational Congress in Tucson in July 2017. Thanks to everyone who attended and everyone who helped make it happen.”

Participants asked questions and requested feedback on issues such as the Massage Body of Knowledge Committees, continuing education provider certification, the National Certification Board and Federation of State Boards of Massage Therapy status on continuing education provider approvals, requests for marketing and school admissions speakers at the 2017 Educational Congress, and voting privileges for Allied Members.
