ABMP Introduces Monthly Payment Option

In an effort to better meet the needs of members, ABMP is introducing a monthly payment option for ABMP Certified membership. ABMP members will have the option of choosing ABMP Certified membership for $229 a year or $20 per month for 12 months. “We recognize that more and more things in our lives have moved to monthly payments,” says Les Sweeney, president of ABMP. “While ABMP membership and the liability insurance included with it will still operate on an annual cycle, we believe that this option for increased flexibility will appeal to many of our members.”

In addition to the flexibility for monthly payments, ABMP Certified membership includes all the free CE and benefits of ABMP Professional membership, plus access to the World Massage Conference CE library, even bigger discounts on massage tables and supplies, and more. “ABMP Certified membership continues to be the best value in the profession, and that has only increased in the past year,” says Sweeney. “We’re excited to be able to make it more accessible to all members with this new pricing option.”
