OMTA: Serving LMTs since 1985

OMTA is an alternative grass-roots professional organization. We are a diverse, eclectic membership, dedicated to a collaborative, consensus process. We support creative new ideas and flexibility. We have a local Oregon identity, are self-authorized, and self-created.

OMTA Partners with LCC for Low Cost Continuing Education

OMTA, partnering with Lane Community College, has formed the Lane County Massage & Bodyworkers Organization. On the first Monday of every month we offer an ongoing series of continuing education subjects at the downtown campus in Eugene. Attendance is free, but there is a $5 fee for OMTA members to receive a Continuing Education Certificate. Non-members pay $10. 


The OBMT is now requiring LMTs to show four contact hours of continuing education each two-year renewal period. OMTA's former president, Robert Bike is now teaching a four-hour ethics class at Lane Community College almost every month. See his website for details.
New Executive Committee
The Past Presidents Council is now running OMTA. Mary Kirkpatrick and Heather Howald resigned from the Executive  Committee. Mary is continuing on as a volunteer. Robert Bike and  Melody Morton Gandy are temporarily in charge of all OMTA functions, as the two past presidents willing to serve. More volunteers are needed. Please contact Melody for more information.  

OMTA'S Past Presidents Council

Per the OMTA Bylaws, a Past Presidents Council was created to assist in the operation of OMTA functions when there are vacancies on the Executive Committee.
If you have served as President of OMTA for two consecutive years and are a current member, you are eligible to serve with this group.  Please contact Robert Bike for more information.
