Im proud that the MTBOK is under the joint stewardship of six of the major professional organizations relating to Massage Therapy. I think its unprecedented, or at least rare, but it is great that these organizations all recognize the importance of the MTBOK.
All of them also help us in many ways, and we try to take advantage of this to help without appearing to favor one or the other - every one of the Steward organizations is an important part of the MTBOK.
Weve decided to take advantage of the large gathering of MT professionals at the convention in Orlando, Fl at the end of this month. As you may have read before, we have an event scheduled for 9/24/09 from 4:00-5:55pm at the Rosen Shingle Creek Resort at the AMTA National Convention in Orlando, FL.
I hope that if you are at the convention you will set aside this time to meet with the Task Force, get an overview of the project and to provide input to the MTBOK content which will be released in a first draft on September 15th.
