Our member meeting at Tuscany Suites & Casino in Las Vegas last Friday was a great time for all: many members got to meet colleagues (some of whom live “just around the corner”) and share some good food and information.
Sally Hacking joined the chapter, from Florida, as it’s Government Relations Consultant – she gave the attending members a brief overview of her role with the chapter and advice that she has given and may yet give the chapter regarding the promotion of the massage therapy profession in Nevada.
Michelle Viesselman & Brad Enerson, Nevada chapter Delegates going to the 2012 House of Delegates in Raleigh this October at the National AMTA Convention, presented 6 proposed Position Statements and 2 Recommendations to the members. A brief outline of what a Delegate’s role in the chapter is and some specific conversation about the Position Statements and Recommendations made for a lively and interactive presentation.
Judi Calvert of Hands-On Trade Association, CAMTC, and the World of Massage Museum presented some information about the history of the AMTA in Nevada and the chapter – there were members here in Nevada before there was an organized chapter (more to come on our history!).
We’d like to thank our NV State Convention Sponsors for providing some great prizes for giveaway, including a Retail Starter Kit (a counter-top display, valued at $125) from Biofreeze that went to our lucky winner Judi!
Come out and find out…at our next chapter member meeting – drop us a line if you have any ideas for Topics!
