Education Chair's Report
If I were interested in patting myself on the back for doing a good job, this last conference (May 2005), would be the time to do it. But, of course, I am not interested in congratulating myself. Rather I am interested in applauding the three presenters at out Padre Island Education Fest! It was reminiscent of the years past, when the Texas Chapter had well-attended conventions and the educational programs to back them. That was exactly how this convention played out.
We had three fabulous classes: Savitri Frizzell taught us about Ethics, David Lauterstein instructed us in Deep Massage and Zero Balancing, and, as the Sunday finale, Bob Leal enlightened us about Thai Body Work. Each class was extraordinary in its own way; together, they were a package to salivate over. Well-done, presenters! I can honestly say, the education left a good impression on the participants and a clamoring for more in the future.
Can we top that? Well, we have more good stuff in store on October 29th, 2005. Elaine Calenda, of the Boulder School of Massage, will present eight hours of TMJ instruction, including interior and exterior mouth work, and Frozen Shoulder techniques, and Ethics Training. Where? Why, in El Paso! Put on your most ghoulish apparel—it’s going to be almost Halloween!—and join us for a TexNewMex adventure.
Want more stuff? Okay, how about Ortho-Bionomy with Advanced Instructor, Randall Winter, in Dallas for 14 hours
of education (including 2 hours Ethics) next year, May 26-28, 2006.
This is your AMTA TEXAS CHAPTER at work for you!!!!!
And on a final note, I will be stepping down from my position as Education Chair as of May 2006, so if any eager, would-be shoe-filler would like to throw his/her hat into the ring, …please contact me or our president, Lou Castleman, to find out how.
Remember, your AMTA Texas Chapter needs YOU!
Peace, blessings, and love,
