  • Board Elections 2016-17
If you believe that professional respect and financial reward should match your passion and enthusiasm in your chosen career of massage therapy then...
You are invited to be a part of something AMAZING!

Your presence will keep the society on the path of educating and supporting massage therapists toward building and maintaining a sustainable livelihood.

Join your colleagues in volunteering your skills as we build an incredibly strong board!

Several massage therapists just like you have stepped up in various capacities to make the NYSSMMT stronger and of even greater value and sense of community for our fellow LMTs. We look forward to continuing our good work.

You may not know it but the NYSSMMT was the first professional massage organization in the country, established in 1927. It would be a shame for it to simply not exist anymore. Please consider giving your time and energy and joining the board. We are a fun, passionate group of therapists who love this society and the profession of massage therapy.

We all have jobs and families so if you are concerned about time commitments; you will be pleased to know that most of us feel that serving the society has enhanced, not taken away from, our lives and our success!

There are open positions for the right people.

Got skills? If yes, then we invite you to discuss the responsibilities and perks of board membership. We look forward to seeing what you bring to the table!
