Join us for community, learning, and fun!

We are offering five exciting classes from three very different instructors at very reasonable prices.  On Saturday, we are hosting three classes, a research poster display, a student breakout, and our Annual Meeting followed by our and Chapter President’s Reception.  We are serving a complimentary lunch for those attending Saturday’s class and hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar at the President’s Reception.

Throughout the weekend we will have a research poster display from Georgia licensed massage therapists and Georgia massage therapy students.  Completed submission forms must be received by the poster selection committee chair ( by Friday, January 17, 2020 at 11:59PM. If you are interested in participating or would like more information, visit the abstracts page.

Our own Cindy Farrar will be teaching Friday afternoon, and Kimberly Corpus and Eric Stephenson are presenting Saturday and Sunday.  There will also be a Student Lunch’n’Learn. Saturday lunch will be served for those attending Saturday classes. Sunday lunch is on your own.

Class sizes are limited, so register early.

President Vivian Davis will host our Annual Meeting where we’ll hear updates from our chapter volunteers, including an update on our amended state law and the current state of our CE changes.  We will recognize some awesome volunteers.  A little birdie told me we’ll be giving away prizes including a massage table or chair. After the Annual Meeting, we’ll adjourn for the President’s Reception where you’ll enjoy refreshments and the company of fellow AMTA members.

We have a limited block of hotel rooms reserved. To receive the discount, reserve your room by February 7th.
