Instructor John Combe will demonstrate advanced techniques, customize approaches tailored to the athlete’s needs and share his vast experience. With a focus on utilizing critical thinking in client assessment, this workshop will help you learn techniques, contraindications, session planning and other valuable information to take your sports massage career to the next level.

The October 25th Santa Ana workshop will include a membership meeting, during which the chapter will discuss and vote on approving standing rules to conduct online elections. See details on the membership meeting below.

The AMTA-CA chapter board will be presenting a standing rule for membership approval at our upcoming membership meeting:

Date: October 25, 2018

Time: 12:00 noon

Location: Marriott Courtyard

Address:  8 MacArthur Pl, Santa Ana, CA

This standing rule proposes that the chapter move from conducting elections at our annual meeting to conducting online elections.  This process provides an opportunity for all AMTA members in California to vote for elected chapter board positions electronically. Currently over 50% of AMTA chapters are conducting their elections electronically with an increase in voter participation.

Additional information will be provided at the meeting.  We are holding this meeting during the lunch break from our sports massage education event. We hope you will attend and exercise you member right to vote on this standing rule.  Please contact AMTA-CA Chapter President John Lambert, president@amta-ca.org  if you have any questions about the standing rule change or sports massage education event.
