If you have not yet done so, please complete your AMTA 2018 Member/Music Therapist Survey. You should have received a reminder link to the survey in your email or you can access the survey via the link below on the AMTA website.
One of the most important things you do each year as a music therapist and member of AMTA is complete the annual AMTA Survey. If you have already submitted your responses, thank you! If you have not yet taken the survey, PLEASE COMPLETE IT NOT LATER THAN AUGUST 30th, 2018. The information you provide helps AMTA to compile the annual Workforce Analysis each year which helps draw an accurate picture of the music therapy profession!
Numbers in the survey are used in critical ways to help people start programs, for legislative efforts, and to help those with comparisons of their own practice. #musictherapyadvocacy I know in particular that the numbers are incredibly helpful for those in private practice or those trying to start or enhance their programs and that they are not very accurate. These inaccurate numbers were used in a committee hearing which was picked up by a local news station
I know it takes a long time to compile the information but it is absolutely worth it!! As an added bonus, you will feel really good when you see how many lives you have impacted this past year through the services you provided!
