The volunteer Virginia Delegates represent the opinions of our Virginia members during the House of Delegates at the National Convention. The delegates keep the association strategically focused by presenting bylaw changes for the Board of Directors’ review.  The House of Delegates also votes on proposed AMTA Position Statements that reflect AMTA’s stance on important massage therapy issues.


Delegates represent us on the National level. Delegates play a very important role for the membership in AMTA. They are your voice on the national level.  Delegates serve two year terms. Every year at the Virginia State Convention we elect 2 delegates, so that every year, there are 4 Virginia members that go to the National Convention and represent the Chapter in the House of Delegates.

Delegates are accountable to, and elected by the membership. For a complete position description, frequently asked questions,  and the current position statements and recommendations, please click here.

Alternate -Delegates

In the event a Delegate is unable to fulfill their duties, an alternate will be asked to fill the term of the Delegate. Alternate Delegates are selected according the number of votes received.


Elected Delegates are required to go to AMTA National Convention. A written report is required to be submitted with expense report in order for reimbursement to be issued. AMTA-VA reimburses airfare, meals and expenses related to travel. Hotel reimbursement is at half of the room rate, so sharing a room with another Delegate is recommended.
