The Illinois chapter of AMTA works only because of our AMAZING members and their desire to volunteer to further our profession. Did you know that there are lots of ways to be involved with your AMTA chapter? Our membership committee is here to help you find your fit within our chapter. We need more members to help with networking, communications, government relations, outreach and education. We want to serve our members in the best way possible.Who would be better than you to make that happen?
In several areas throughout the state, we have groups that meet regularly to network, share techniques, trade massages or just socialize. If you don’t have one of these groups in your area, contact us to find out how to get one started. Our chapter is also working to reach out on a more individual level to its members. Maybe you can help? Is it easy for you to talk to other therapists? Do you like to make people feel welcome or spread awareness of events in your area? Let us know!
Are you interested in what goes on behind the scenes with our state licensing board or local government settings? Then you should consider becoming part of the government relations committee. We need Massage Therapists interested in helping educate our communities.
Do you have a talent for marketing through social media? Or are you gifted at organization or writing? Our communications team always needs someone to help get information to our members, your fellow massage therapists all through the state.
Some people are just good at organizing events. Maybe you can help bring more continuing education opportunities to our state, throughout our state. Let us know what you would like to see happening and help our education committee make it happen!
Each individual member is important to our Illinois AMTA chapter. We are working to make sure you know that! But the best way for us to hear you is for you to get involved. Contact Keri Randall at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out where to start.
