Board meeting and Chapter Advancement Initiative in Manchester
AMTA Chapter Advancement Training
Thank you to the  American Massage Therapy Association – AMTA chapter advancement and initiative training for coming to NH. NH AMTA MEMBERS, your board was in class all day Friday 8th for CAI training. We hosted the fabulous Miss. Colleen and Mr. Andrew from the AMTA volunteer development team. We have been in rebuilding for a few years now and are starting to grow again. We had a great time as we learned, reaffirmed, collaborated, brainstormed, learned some more, bonded, stretched, ate and strengthened as a team for y’all… stay tuned for future offerings. As always never hesitate to reach out to get involved on the volunteer level, email us at Socialmedia@amta.nh.org for more information.

You Can Be a Part of This:

AMTA-NH is hosting Monthly Zoom Connection for Massage Therapists!

We have been mulling over how to connect massage therapists in New Hampshire, all the while minimizing the impact on your time. Although face-to-face meetings are best, they are also challenging because of the time commitment, travel, etc.

In our latest meeting, we decided to offer a monthly one hour Zoom call.

Starting December 5th and then the first Tuesday of each month, we will be hosting a lively and informative Zoom call from 7:00-8:00pm.

This virtual gathering is aimed at creating a space for connection, camaraderie, and knowledge-sharing among our community of massage therapists.

Why should you join?

Community Connection: In the world of massage therapy, connection is key. Our Zoom Connect will provide a platform for you to interact with fellow therapists, share experiences, and build a supportive network.

Informative Discussions: Each month, we will explore different themes and topics relevant to the field. From the latest massage techniques to self-care practices for therapists, these discussions will be both enriching and empowering.

Interactive Activities: This isn’t just your average Zoom call! We’ll incorporate fun and interactive elements to keep the conversation lively and engaging. Get ready for virtual icebreakers, Q&A sessions, and perhaps even a few surprises.

  • Guest Speakers: As we march towards our April educational event, we plan on inviting some of our instructors to provide a teaser to what you can expect. You can also expect insights from fellow therapists and thought leaders who will share their knowledge and experiences. Our aim is to provide you with valuable takeaways that can enhance your practice and elevate your career.

How to Join:

Mark your calendars for the first Thursday of each month at 7:00 pm. The Zoom link will be sent out a week before each session, so keep an eye on your inbox.

Spread the Word:

Encourage your fellow massage therapists to join us! The more, the merrier. You don’t have to be an AMTA member to join and learn. Let’s build a vibrant community that supports, inspires, and uplifts each other.

We look forward to connecting with you on our inaugural Zoom call December 5th, 2023. Your presence will truly make a difference in making this initiative a success.

If you have any specific topics you’d like us to cover or if you’re interested in being a guest speaker, please feel free to reach out to us at presiden@amta-nh.org.

Wishing you wellness and excitement,

Vincent Dufort, PhD LMT
