Your AMTA-MA Chapter was the honored recipient of The LLEAD (Legislative and Legal Education, Advocacy and Defense) Grant for the 2nd year in a row! The purpose of the LLEAD fund is to provide assistance and funding to aid the efforts of chapters in their legislative efforts that seek to safeguard the interests of the AMTA membership at large by promoting the most favorable legal climate for the profession of massage therapy. We are the only professional organization with a lobbyist on hand to help with state licensing in MA. If you have questions or want to get involved, just email firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the meantime, check out all that we've been a part of at the state and local level in the past few years by reading our updates on Massachusetts Laws and Legislation. These are the issues that affect massage therapists. If you are not currently receiving our chapter emails and newsletters, please email email@example.com and we'll add you to our distribution list.
Oh, and if you are wondering, we'll definitely be applying for the grant again in 2018! Who doesn't want to three-peat???
