Honoring an Exceptional Educator

The Dianne Polseno Lifetime Achievement Award honors the memory of Dianne Polseno, an industry leader who left behind a legacy of integrity, professionalism, leadership, volunteer service, massage research and an unquestionable commitment to the advancement of the massage education profession.

AMTA wants to honor a person who also manifests these qualities. Tell us whose lifetime of achievements should be recognized. 

The Lifetime Achievement nominee should have manifested a history of unquestionable leadership, volunteer service, professionalism, integrity and a commitment to research to advance the massage education profession.
