The World Massage Festival brought glad tidings to over 50 massage therapists yesterday when founder Mike Hinkle held the drawing for the Christmas in July contest, gifting all of them with free tuition to the 2011 Festival that will be held July 14-17 in at Western Carolina University in Cullowhee, NC. That’s what I call “community service.”
For the first time, the American Massage Therapy Association is allowing candidates to have more than just the candidate statement on the ballot. This week, Cynthia Ribeiro, candidate for President-Elect, and Nancy Porambo, candidate for Vice-President, both turned up on my Facebook page with campaign pages. I think that’s great; the candidate statements that are allowed on the ballots are pretty short, and in my opinion, if you don’t know the people personally, don’t really give you much of a picture of who they are and what they’re running for and standing for.
