What is a Position Statement of the House of Delegates?
The House of Delegates is a representative body of the membership that approves AMTA position statements. A position statement is AMTA's position on professional or public policy issues that relate to the mission and goals of the Association. An individual member or group of members develops proposed Position Statements. However, they can only be submitted by an AMTA Professional Active member and only a delegate can submit a proposal for a Position Statement to the House of Delegates Operations Committee.AMTA Position Statements
At the 2009 AMTA House of Delegates meeting to be held in September in Orlando, Florida delegates will consider each of the following proposed AMTA position statements. All members are encouraged to read and post their comments on these proposals. Your comments will be provided to the delegates before they meet to discuss the proposals. Position statements approved by the House of Delegates immediately become official views of the association.

Proposed Position Statements:
It is the position of the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) that massage therapy can improve the quality of life for those in hospice and palliative care. (This one is sponsored by the MA Chapter!!)
Every year an individual member or group of members can develop a recommendation. Recommendations should be discussed at a Chapter Meeting (if not possible at least a Chapter Board Meeting) and then authorized to be submitted by a majority vote of the Chapter or the Chapter Board of Directors.
