2018 Annual Chapter Awards

Each year AMTA-IL recognizes individuals who have been nominated by their peers; recognizing them for their contributions toward the advancement of massage therapy and/or their contributions to AMTA on both the state and national levels. There are seven (7) categories: Meritorious Award, Distinguished Service Award, Humanitarian Award, Educator Of The Year Award, Outstanding Student Of The Year Award and The Pioneer Award.

Now is the time to begin thinking about who you believe is deserving of one of these prestigious awards. The 2018 Illinois Chapter Spring Conference and Member Meeting is scheduled for April 6-8 during which time the Awards Ceremony takes place. Don’t wait until the last minute to submit your nominations. Please mark your calendar and submit them no later than March 1, 2018..

Nominations are submitted online and contain biographical data about each candidate along with a short paragraph stating the reason for their nomination. The Awards Committee, which is made up of volunteers from throughout the state reviews all the nominations and selects the winners.

Any AMTA-IL member can volunteers to be on the Awards Committee. It is a unique experience in which they have the distinct honor to review the nominations and cast an unbiased vote.

For more Information about the Awards Committee, the nomination process or any of other chapter volunteer opportunities, please email the AMTA Illinois Chapter at  Illinois@amtamassage.org or call 847-430-0203.
