Assembly of Delegates
The position of a delegate is unlike any other position in the Chapter. It is a position elected at the Chapter level. Delegates meet at the House of Delegates (HOD) meeting during the annual national convention, which is a national meeting. Delegates are given authority by National Bylaws and Policies and through election by the chapter membership.
A delegate represents his/her chapter members in the HOD and related activities. The delegate informs the chapter leaders and members of timelines, and expresses the desires of the chapter members through voice and vote in the HOD. This cross-sharing of information allows individual members to have their voices heard at the National level.
2023 Chapter Delegates:
Nancy Specian & Karrin Kalb
At the Annual Meeting, we will be introducing you to the type of Proposals which are submitted to Assembly of Delegates at the August AMTA Convention.
Proposals can be written by a member, chapter, workgroup, standing committee, foundation, National Board of Delegates or even NCBTMB.
When thinking about ideas for the Position Statement, here are some things to consider:
- We are gathering input not solutions;
- AMTA’s mission, goals, and statement on discrimination;
- we are asking broad questions
- not defamatory;
- cannot endorse political candidate/party, specific product or company;
- cannot address internal AMTA issues.
Example: In 2020, discussion for a position statement focused on massage in integrated healthcare.
You can list up to three questions you would like to pose for discussion by the AOD which need to be:
- target the information that the proposal hopes to gather;
- state any action you feel AMTA should be taking.

For any questions or clarifications, please contact your Delegate at firstname.lastname@example.org
Community Service Massage Team
As a Sports Massage Therapist on the AMTA-CO Event Sports Massage Team, you will have the opportunity to work on athletes at events throughout Colorado. Being a part of the team is just that, a team. Very rarely as Massage Therapists do we get the opportunity to work alongside other therapists. At events you have 5-10 other therapists that you can learn from and work next to. We are looking to add more people to the Community Service Massage Team this year, as well as more events.
We look forward to seeing you all this year!
Please contact the Chapter Community Service Massage Team Chair with any questions you may have about joining us at email@example.com
