AMTA-KY Chapter President Letter

A Message From Your KY Chapter President
Caren McCarty
Winter 2021


Happy New Year! I hope everyone is staying Healthy and Happy. I know 2020 was a rough year for many of us and staying positive has been a challenge. In light of current National events, I am encouraged that 2021 will bring us all new hope, knowing that one day soon, this will all be behind us.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, AMTA National has cancelled all face to face meetings through May, 2021. (This is being done to keep us all safe.) Unfortunately, this means we WILL NOT have our Annual Education Conference in 2021. Usually, we hold our Annual Business Meeting at lunch during our Education Conference, but since we cannot meet face to face we will hold our 2021 Business Meeting virtually. For more information see the article titled “Virtual Annual Business Meeting” in this Newsletter below. I hope you will join us. I am looking forward to the new way of communicating and I hope you are too.

So, what can you expect for future AMTA-KY education conferences? I wish I could say when we can meet again. COVID will definitely control that. I want to assure you that the AMTA-KY Board will be working side by side with the education committee to bring you the stellar, face to face education experience you have come to love. In the meantime, if you need to fulfill your CE requirements, please click here to see what options AMTA has for you. AMTA offers a variety of rigorously vetted massage therapy continuing education classes and training, available online. AMTA members save up to 40%! I personally have taken 14 AMTA online CE’s in 2020 and I highly recommend them.

Best Regards, Caren
