FSMTB 2020 Election Results

The 15th annual election of the Federation of State Massage Therapy Boards (FSMTB) was conducted online October 5–13, 2020. A quorum was established by registration of voting delegates representing 41 FSMTB member boards and agencies.

Position One: Incumbent Robin Alexander, not affiliated with a state board, was elected to serve a three-year term on the board of directors.

Position Two: Sandy Anderson, executive director of the Nevada State Board of Massage Therapy was elected to serve a three-year term on the board of directors.

There were three open positions to serve on the 2021 Nominating Committee. Three candidates presented; therefore, all three are elected by acclamation.

The 2021 Nominating Committee members are:

  • Carla Hedtke, Wisconsin Massage Therapy and Bodywork Therapy Affiliated Credentialing Board
  • Megan Maxey, Washington State Board of Massage
  • Allyson Pettley, Utah Board of Massage Therapy

We extend our thanks to Thomas Ryan, former Executive Director, Wisconsin Massage Therapy and Bodywork Therapy Affiliated Credentialing Board, who completes a three-year term of service on the board of directors. Sincere thanks are also due to the excellent candidates who were not successfully elected in 2020. The Federation benefits from leadership and the experience of our members; we encourage them to remain involved in supporting the work of the FSMTB and consider reapplying at the next available opportunity.

The newly constituted board of directors will meet on Friday, October 16, 2020, to elect the president, vice president, and treasurer of the board.
