Presidents Message

October 2022

Greetings Chapter Members,

After two years of virtual meetings, we finally met face-to-face in 2022. We renewed old acquaintances and met new friends. Face-to-face. We began with the February Annual Convention with meetings, and receptions, along with Bruce Baltz teaching us to Active Assisted Stretching: Clinical Applications.  In July, Bruce followed up with a second AIS class.  In September, Paul Kohlmeier presented Evidence Informed Clinical Cupping. We were pleased to present these classes at a reduced cost to members.

Although we are almost at the end of 2022, I want you to know that your Georgia Board of Directors and volunteers are here for you. We are about you, the member. We would love to hear from you as to what classes you might like to have next year and possible locations. How do you let us know, just email me with your suggestions. 

I thank you for allowing me to serve as your chapter president. I look forward to meeting every one of you and helping as many of our members as I can and helping to continue to move our chapter to the future. 

Good Health
