Class Description

We are pleased to announce the start of the Southeast Region CSMT Emergency Response Division!

This new outreach program was formed from the concept of MERT (Massage Emergency Response Team), which was established in 1989 following the Loma Prieta, California Earthquake. The CSMT played a significant role in 9/11 at Ground Zero and again at the Sandy Hook School Shooting in 2012, among many other emergency situations.

CSMT was developed because of the need to maintain a readiness for such emergencies and have an active presence in the community. The growth of this program is continuing to evolve in NC. We would like to invite you, along with Licensed Massage & Bodywork Therapists from our neighboring states, to join us in this training!

Regional Education INFORMATION:

Regional Education:  The state of North Carolina divided up into 6 small geographical areas (by counties) to provide low-cost, continuing education & networking opportunities at a local/close- to-home locale.  It is the goal of AMTA-NC  to subdivide these 6 regions again & have 12 regions throughout the state thereby doubling the opportunities for CE’s and saving time & money in travel.  To achieve this we need more coordinators. Please consider helping your AMTA-NC Chapter & membership by volunteering as a Regional Education Coordinator.

Regional Education generally have two local meetings a year; That is 12 local meetings through-out the state for our members continuing education needs. Unit meetings are usually 3 – 6 hours of Continuing Education Credits with an Ethics classes offered every other year.

Triad Regional Education Coordinator

T.A.G. Woods

The first time I heard about AMTA was while studying at Body Therapy Institute. I became a student member and later a professional member.  I joined mainly for the liability insurance coverage. I enjoyed glancing through the Hands-On® newsletter and reading mtj® that all AMTA members receive.

It was years later that I began utilizing some of the other membership benefits, attending AMTA-NC conventions, reading and sharing research and position statements. At an AMTA-NC Convention in Raleigh, Ed Sansbury awarded me a 10 year member gift. I thought that was really nice and I was touched that an organization as large as AMTA would recognize and appreciate a member like me.

More years past and during the AMTA-NC Convention in 2011 I attended a volunteers’ luncheon. I was volunteered to volunteer as Triad Unit Coordinator. That “what just happened” moment was the beginning of my truly understanding the many, many benefits of AMTA that are available to all our members. I am grateful to that person who volunteered me.

As an AMTA-NC volunteer I receive email communications from our BOD, attend meetings and conference calls. As I get to know our BOD I witness their passion and commitment to the AMTA mission statement,“To serve AMTA members while advancing the art, science and practice of massage therapy.” These remarkable women and men carry those words in their hearts and live their lives accordingly.

Two of my passions are learning and teaching. The primary responsibility of Unit Coordinators is to organize local continuing education for the unit’s members.  It is a joy to talk, meet and work with many extraordinary teachers, especially those who call NC home. I attended my first Unit CE class as part of the training for Unit Coordinator. I cannot believe that I had never taken advantage of this great benefit of affordable, local Unit CE’s! I hope you will join us and utilize this AMTA benefit.

I was graced to have been awarded a scholarship for the 2012 AMTA National Convention in Raleigh, NC as an extremely generous thank you for the work I have performed as Triad Unit Coordinator. It was an excellent opportunity to meet our AMTA National leaders and those from various Chapters throughout the US as well as the Massage Therapy Foundation leaders. They are heart-centered professionals working tirelessly “to serve AMTA members while advancing the art, science and practice of massage therapy.”
