Submit Position Statement Proposals Early

AMTA’s House of Delegates has approved nine position statements that express the view of the association on the value and efficacy of massage therapy. If you believe the association should make a public statement on some aspect of massage therapy that you can strongly support with documented research, consider writing a proposal for the 2012 House of Delegates.

If you want to be sure your proposal can be considered in 2012, submit it by January 15, 2012

>> Read AMTA’s approved position statements. Think of ways you can use these statements and the research supporting them to promote your practice as well as the value of massage therapy.
