The Broward chapter of the FSMTA is a non for profit organization that works as your local representation of the FSMTA (Florida State Massage Therapy Association).
The FSMTA maintains a strong presence in Tallahassee to protect the rights of the massage therapist. We promote and initiate legislative platforms to improve the status of massage, our right to practice, and our right to be part of the Health Care Delivery System. We have lobbyists, an attorney on retainer, a legislative committee, and a legislative chairperson – all who work on YOUR behalf to make sure that the legislature is aware of the concerns of the therapist
For more information as to what the FSMTA does and is concerned with, please visit: http://fsmta.org/about/legislative-accomplishments/
The Broward chapter of the FSMTA has its Chapter meetings on the First Tuesday of every month with the exception of July, due to the state convention, and December, due to the holiday season.
Chapter meetings are open to any and all members but we also welcome nonmembers like students and non member therapists. For members, generally the meetings are free with the exception of a few occasions where there may be a fee for required CEU’s (HIV, LAW, ETHICS, PREVENTION OF MEDICAL ERRORS) and on occasion where we may have a special speaker and may ask for a nominal donation to help cover their expenses. Nonmembers pay a nominal fee to attend any and all of the meetings that they attend and may join the Broward Chapter at any time, just see our treasurer if you are at a meeting and want to join, online registration click here.
Normally chapter meetings are usually held at the Imperial Point Hospital, 6401 North Federal Highway, Fort Lauderdale, FL, 33308*, in the auditorium/lecture hall. On occasion, other hospital programs may be held on the same night that we hold our meeting and we may hold our meeting at another venue. (*PLEASE CHECK OUR HOME PAGE FOR EXACT MEETING PLACE AND TIME!) Normally we use an email blast to inform members of last minute changes, we will also post changes to the website, so please make sure that you are on our email list and check the website frequently.
The board meetings are held on the last Tuesday of every month. Mostly just the board members attend these, but any member may attend, just please let us know ahead of time if you would like to so that we may accommodate for space.
