March Board of Directors Meeting Wrap-Up

The new AMTA Board of Directors held its first face-to-face meeting of the association’s fiscal year on March 5. They approved two changes to AMTA bylaws, which had been available for member review online and cleanup up some aspects of policy to reflect previous board decisions. The board also approved the annual relationship agreement with the Massage Therapy Foundation. 

Reports showed the strong financial strength of the association and that membership numbers are continuing to increase. The Audit Commission briefly explained that it would begin its annual audit of AMTA’s finances for FY10/11.

The board meeting followed a two-day orientation for board members and other national volunteer leaders, and featured discussion with chapter leaders about the approaches to integration of massage in health care.
