a community of practitioners
I applied for membership, and I have a lot of experience but they put me through a long, drawn out mess. I got the feeling they didn't trust their own application process. Then they never cashed my membership check, dated Sept 9th, till now, and meanwhile my bank actually failed! So finally, I withdrew my membership application. They are very disorganized.
I am teaching oncology massage in a community college with a hospital affiliation on Long Island and I would love to be able to support a professional association for oncology massage, bring my students into it and so forth, but that's not happening yet.
