Elected Volunteers are elected by chapter members through online elections leading up to the annual meeting or by board members when there is a vacancy outside the regular election window.
Stepping up to elected office allows you a bigger role in the future of our profession. Board members plan, delegate responsibilities, and vote for actions, and policies, and expenditures. The following positions are elected for two year terms. Sometimes vacant seats become available and the Board elects a replacement to fill in until the next chapter-wide election.
The chapter board of directors consists of:
- Two Board Members
- Financial Administrator
Members of the chapter board of directors serve two-year terms.
The Assembly of Delegates (AOD) is a group of elected chapter members knowledgeable in AMTA culture whose purpose is to provide input on items of interest for the association as it relates/impacts their state, as outlined in policy. Those items can either be a position statement idea, or items of more general interest to the association and the massage therapy profession. They meet online and at the AMTA National Convention. Your chapter delegates represent you as a chapter member by canvassing you for your opinions on these issues. Georgia will be sending two delegates. Delegates are elected by the chapter and serve a two-year term. We currently elect two delegates to the AOD.
Delegates serve two-year terms.
