AMTA-KY Chapter President Letter

A Message from Your KY Chapter President

Fall 2022

A Slow Return to Normal!

I hope everyone is wringing every last bit of enjoyment from the summer, as time is certainly flying by!

The AMTA National Convention was in Cleveland last week, and it was a wonderful opportunity to finally engage and reconnect with fellow massage therapists from around the country. Our state was fairly well represented, and I hope all those that attended were able to learn a lot, and came home as reinvigorated towards our profession and organization as I.

On a more local note, we (along with our lobbyist Bob Babbage) are working with the state revenue cabinet to nail down the details of the impending sales tax. So far, there are no final details beyond it going into effect on January 1, 2023. Our Government Relations Committee chair Ann Boone has a bit more details below.

Moving forward, our chapter is trying something new beginning this year, to further engage with our members from around the commonwealth. We will be hosting low-cost social events throughout the state and strongly encourage everyone to attend if they are able. The first event will be the September Social Soiree, an evening appetizer cruise held aboard the Queen City Riverboat in Dayton, KY on Sunday September 18th. Register now for Early Bird pricing! Additionally, any member of AMTA-KY that brings an LMT that is currently a non-member LMT will receive $20.00 off of their AMTA-KY 2023 Spring Educational Conference registration. If you have suggestions or requests for an event in your local area, we would love to hear from you!

Get ready for the AMTA-KY 2023 Spring Conference! Planning is in full swing. Stay tuned to the newsletter for more information in the coming months. We are really excited to finally host a full chapter event once again. Covid did a number on us all, but I believe that our chapter is coming back stronger than ever!
