The day will begin with the AMTA-OR Board meeting from 10am-noon. This meeting is free and is a great chance to learn what your chapter is up to. We’ll recap the AMTA National Convention in Pasadena, discuss proposed rule changes affecting massage in Oregon, and plan upcoming CEs and the 2018 AMTA Oregon State Convention – April 7-8th at NUNM in Portland! We’ll also discuss board positions that will open in 2018 and how you can get involved in AMTA-OR.
We’ll serve lunch at noon, included with your registration!!
At 1pm, David Fredrickson will lead a 4-hour interactive presentation and discussion of a range of ethics issues shared by massage therapy professionals locally, regionally and nationally. He will also address the changing roles and relationships of the OBMT, AMTA-OR and other trade associations in maintaining ethical standards in the massage profession. We’re really excited about this rare opportunity to talk to someone who has a wealth of experience with the legal and professional side of massage therapy! The class will include lots of discussion, so please come prepared with questions about the massage profession and ethical dilemmas you think deserve attention!
Finally, from 5:30 to 7pm, we’ll have a happy hour hosted by Body Support Systems – an Ashland-based company!! They’ll be demonstrating their bolstering system and providing drinks and snacks. We’ll have a chance to hang out, get to know each other, and build some great connections!
