2023 Texas Convention

Join AMTA – Texas for the 2023 Convention in El Paso

April 27 – 29, 2023

The Texas Chapter of The American Massage Therapy Association invites you to come learn and play with us in El Paso, Texas for the annual convention and meeting and education conference. Meet and network with peers and new colleagues while attending face to face classes with leaders in the profession. Get hands on practice in a variety of techniques. Tables will be provided, so no need to skip it because you can’t bring a table.

There will also be plenty of time and opportunity to Explore El Paso! Members (and plus 1’s) are invited to join us Friday evening for a fun evening at a Chihuahuas baseball game (dinner provided) while connecting with new friends and peers.

Join us for breakfast and lunch while you meet new people or connect with old friends. Members are invited to join us for dinner at our annual State of the Chapter meeting on Thursday evening where we introduce new board members, hand out awards, recognize those members who have contributed to the success of our chapter, spend time with your board sharing suggestions and asking questions to make this chapter even more responsive to your needs, and learn about future plans and events.

Instructors include: Susan Salvo, Barbara White, Robert Gardner, Kelli Lene, Amy Scottino, Christina Montes de Oca, Sheila Palmer, and Christina Hughes.

There is a topic offered to fit any need. We look forward to seeing you there.
