Membership Meetings

MTANS holds two general membership meetings per calendar year – the Annual General Meeting in the spring, and the Semi-Annual General Meeting in the fall. While attendance at these meetings is not mandatory, we strongly urge members to be present. By attending these meetings, members can develop friendships and working relationships with other members while keeping informed of current provincial and national issues affecting the practice of massage therapy.

If you are unable to attend you can still have your voice heard. A proxy will allow another MTANS member to vote on motions during the meeting on your behalf. These could be issues of budget or election of new members, or new initiatives by the committees. You can select a friend or co-worker (within MTANS) who is going to the meeting to be your proxy. They would take your form with them and be authorized to vote for you. Alternatively you can select a member of the Board of Directors and fax or mail the proxy form into head office prior to the meeting. If you are interested in either of these options, please fill out the proxy form.
