Members, We Need Your Help

By Becca Torns-Barker
AMTA-CT President, LMT 4111

Did You Know?
That the CT Chapter offers you benefits far beyond what National requires of us? Here is what we are required to offer:

  • Three newsletters a year (We offer four)
  • One community building event (We offer four)
  • One annual membership meeting (We offer four)

In addition, we offer:

  • A lobbyist to help us advance the perception of massage in the state legislative body
  • Three FREE education events
  • One low-cost education conference, including an exhibit hall and national-level educators
  • CSMT team
  • SMT team

All of these programs have all become a solid part of our chapter community culture.

Many of you ask WHY we spend our time volunteering for this non-profit organization. Well, for many reasons!

  • We believe in this organization
  • We need a voice at the Capitol, and need to have a say in legislation that effects us
  • We have learned skills FAR beyond what we use in our practice, which grows us professionally
  • We built our practices through volunteerism!!!  Every member of chapter leadership has obtained a paid massage job by volunteering at AMTA events.

Want to be a part of this AMAZING team of leaders? It’s a few hours a week, done at home, plus attending the four chapter meetings, and if it’s a Board position, attending the five Board meetings (conference call available).

We need:

  • Someone to coordinate awards
  • Someone to coordinate the activities of the Sports Massage Team
  • Someone to coordinate the email communications of the chapter
  • Someone to coordinate the education and membership events

Please reach out to and ask for more information. We’d love to welcome some new blood to the leadership team. In addition, this fall, we’ll be having a chapter workshop (for chapter leaders) to help set the goals for the chapter in the next four years. This is a great time to join the team and truly make an impact in the direction of the chapter.

Thank you,
