The AAMT Victorian Division has the largest membership base within the Association and represents many therapists with diverse backgrounds. The Division has very active Regional Groups that meet at regular intervals, holding informal networks and education seminars in their local areas.
The Victorian Committee is a dedicated group of practitioners from a range of backgrounds and modalities with a commitment to serve members and provide educational events that can be readily accessed. The Committee invites Victorian Division members to contact any of your Division representatives with questions or queries.
The focus of the Division is a strong educational one and one of member participation. Professional Massage Education run throughout the year on a variety of topics as well as representation at exhibitions and at massage colleges.
Considerable time is required in planning, organising venues and presenters. The aim, as committee members, is to assist members in regional Victoria, in particular, to organise their own events and we encourage members to get in touch with other professionals in your local area.
