Government Relations

We are working to update this page. Please check back in the future for updates.

AMTA Wisconsin Chapter Government Relations Committee is here to help with questions or issues relating to how our profession is impacted by laws: Government, State and Municipal. We work with the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) Governance team on your behalf.

The National AMTA office provides us with monthly reports on legislation across the country. We also retain a Legislative Watch to alert us to current and upcoming legislation. When a call to action is needed we alert the membership, often early enough in a bill’s process to prevent poor or damaging legislation from moving out of the committee stage. Watch our website, social media, Connecting Hands Newsletter, and chapter member news emails for alerts. Non-Members may also subscribe for legislative alerts by email (see below). We may also post action alerts on Engage, AMTA’s new legislative advocacy action tool.

Each year, we also request a Proclamation from the Office of the Governor declaring Massage Therapy Awareness Week in Wisconsin to coincide with AMTA’s National Massage Therapy Awareness Week.
