AMTA-WA State Convention

Another year and another State Convention, April 21 – 23, 2015.  The time flies by.  Since I’m the secretary of the State Chapter of the AMTA, I got to see a lot of the back end of putting on this convention this year.  Lots of first this year!

This is the first year we used our new website for registration.  The back end of our sites is called Your Memebership.  Since joining the board a year ago, I’ve seen many new features added to our site as well as what’s about to happen with the system.  We learned a lot about our registration process and next year will go much smoother.

Another first was the Career Fair.  I hope you all got to meet many employers in the greater Seattle area. There were just over 10 employers there.  Next year the convention will be in Spokane and that will be more educational than Exhibit Hall and the likes.

If you took the Getting Paid classes, I got to speak on HIPAA and choosing the right EMR system for your office.  I have posted the notes here for you to look at and download.  Josie Ives of Empower Billing taught the class.  A lot of changes are coming in the next 5 years that will affect massage therapists and the way we do billing.  Please be sure to get on our mailing list so we can keep you posted on action items and new details.  You can join my newsletter to the right.

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me using the form.  I strive to respond to all emails within 24 hours.
