AMTA-KY Chapter President Letter

A Message from Your KY Chapter President
Jeff Butler, LMT
Summer 2022

I hope everyone is having an enjoyable start to their summer! The warmer weather and increased daylight is certainly a welcome change for me. For those of you that do not know me, my name is Jeff Butler, and I am the newly elected AMTA-KY Chapter President. I am looking forward to this opportunity to meet, know, and interact with all of the membership throughout the state. Now that the in-person restrictions are being relaxed, I am envisioning many more face to face events.

As president, my first goal is to reach out to ALL LMT’s, whether they are AMTA-KY Members or Non-members, from the entire state of Kentucky. I plan on doing this by instituting a fall social event, and having it in a different locale each year. This year’s 2022 Fall event is currently still in the finalization stages, so we cannot release many details just yet, but it is set to be in Northern Kentucky. We will be inviting all LMT’S across the state to attend this special event. It will be in September, and you won’t want to miss it! Please the spread the word to all of your LMT friends and colleagues that are not AMTA-KY members and invite them to our events.

The event will change, moving throughout the state, but will always be open to therapists from any part of Kentucky. However, if you cannot make it, don’t fret! We are making this an annual event. So, if you have something in your area that you love, or that you think would be a great thing to show off, please let us know! We are always interested in your input, thoughts, and ideas regarding our events for this year, the next year, the year after, and beyond!

Beyond the fall event, there are a lot of changes happening for us as therapists in Kentucky. From the decreases in our CEs, to increases in our licensing fees, all the way to a looming sales tax, there are many issues to keep track of. Our Government Relations committee is doing an amazing job keeping on top of everything. For more information, please take a few moments to read the GR Report.

This year, the AMTA National convention is in Cleveland. That’s close enough that I hope to see many of you all there!

Thank you for taking time out of your day to read our newsletter. And, please, contact us if you have any questions, comments, concerns, and certainly if you want to volunteer!
