Annual DC chapter meeting and elections

March 3, 2014 

For our first meeting of 2014, the chapter board planned out a year's worth of educational activities, volunteer opportunities and fun networking events for our membership.  We've included it all here In this inaugural bimonthly Calendar of Events. We hope to see each of you attend at least one event.  If there's an event you'd like to plan or an educational opportunity you want to explore, please tell us!  We're here to make it happen.

NMTAW at Farragut Sq.
We know the benefits of massage -- let's educate the public & have fun doing it!

AMTA-DC Chapter sponsors events throughout the year to promote and educate MTs and the public about the benefits of massage. For 2014 we focus on skin cancer prevention.

World Skin Project - Saturday, May 10 12:00-6:00 pm
Did you know 1 in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetimes? As massage therapists, we are uniquely positioned to identify and prevent skin cancer and the World Skin Project will teach us how. Join us at Vida Fitness in Dupont Circle; registration opens April 1.

AMTA National Convention - Sept. 17-20, 2014
Join us in Denver, Colorado for the national convention, where we engage with our AMTA community, connect with leaders of our profession and thrive in a word-class learning environment.

In 2013, NMTAW events around the country reached over 100 million people.  In DC, we staged a "flash massage" in Farragut Square -- check out this YouTube video of the event. This year we're planning bigger and better events. What ideas do you have for NMTAW 2014?
Volunteer Opportunities
We have a gift -- let's share it with the world!

Licensed massage therapists are needed for many exciting events and worthwhile agencies throughout the national capital region. To participate, you must provide a copy of your DC, MD or VA massage license.

Avon Walk for Breast Cancer - Sat/Sun, May 3 and 4
2 days. 39 miles. These folks need a massage. You can help them raise millions of dollars for breast cancer awareness and prevention. Tables provided; just bring your hands. To volunteer, contact Jaime Bernardo at [email protected] or (301) 370-8100.

Marine Corps Marathon - Sunday, Oct. 26
Last year's Touch of Relief team massaged over 200 runners in 6 hours and helped Fisher House raise over $400,000 to benefit wounded warriors and their families. High energy, fast-paced, fun. Tables provided; just bring your hands.  To volunteer, contact Jaime Bernardo at [email protected] or (301) 370-8100.
