– School Issues: Giving great tours; making special needs adaptations; financial management; financial aid; recruiting and retaining employees; increasing enrollment

The idea of a Congress was originally inspired by members of the massage therapy and bodywork education community, aiming to have one event where representatives from every organization connected with massage therapy and bodywork education could gather to share, collaborate and discuss the critical issues affecting the massage therapy industry, exchange information, enhance teaching skills, and network.
The first Educational Congress in 2015 set a record for the best-attended massage and bodywork educators' event in history, the AFMTE said.
The AFMTE Conference Planning Committee is accepting presenter applications for consideration. Visit AFMTE website for information, application and instructions for presenting at the Educational Congress.
Registration will be announced soon.
