Membership in The American Music Therapy Association, and therefore the Mid-Atlantic Region of AMTA, provides a number of benefits which notably include: discounted rates for conferences, free CMTE credits, advocacy work on the state and national levels, and both printed and online access to past, present, and future journals.
Perhaps even more important than the above stated membership perks, is that membership in AMTA also affords your voice a vote in the increasingly important AMTA and MAR-AMTA elections.
The MAR-AMTA believes strongly in our members and supports music therapists who reside in the Region and have financial constraints that limit their ability to join AMTA. The Region will provide one membership support award to cover the current cost of AMTA membership dues (currently valued at $250.00). Applications are anonymously reviewed and discretion is paramount throughout the application procedure.
To apply for the 2022 MAR-AMTA Membership Support Fund, music therapists must reside in the Mid-Atlantic Region and maintain their Board Certification from CBMT. The recipient of the MAR Membership Support Fund will be required to show proof of membership once the award has been disbursed. The deadline for applications is December 10th, 2021 and notification of the award will be made by December 17th, 2021.
