2016 Annual Business Meeting

2016 AFMTE Annual Business Meeting 

On July 14, 2016, the Alliance for Massage Therapy Education held its Annual Business Meeting online. Our bylaws state we must hold an annual business meeting with our membership and all from the massage and bodywork education community were invited to attend. The purpose of the meeting was to update members about business and committee work during the previous year. The meeting agenda included a financial report, election information, updates on their National Teacher Education Standards Project, the 2017 Educational Congress, association updates, and committee reports. We also allotted time for questions and answers so that all attendees had an opportunity for their voices to be heard and concerns addressed.

“The Alliance Board is very pleased with the content of and attendance at the AFMTE Annual Meeting on July 14, 2016.  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.” Stan Dawson, Vice President of AFMTE.  

We are happy to report 69 individuals pre-registered; 55 attended the meeting, of which 37 were AFMTE members. The event lasted 2 hours and 10 minutes and was moderated by President Cherie Sohnen-Moe, as well as Immediate Past President Pete Whitridge, Marketing Consultant Stephanie Beck, and Committee Member Deanna Sylvester.
