Annual board member elections, general meeting and CEU
We will be having an election for new board members. We are voting on the positions of President, Vice President and Secretary. This will be done by ballot and in order to vote you must be a current member. Please bring a current copy of your AAMA membership card if you have it. We can verify your membership but having your card will speed the process along a little bit.
We will also be opening the floor for nominations for the positions. If you are interested please reach out to a board member so we can review the requirements with you.
Our education for the evening will be presented by Cynthia Tamlyn-CCA, Certified Clinical Aromatherapist will speak on the potential effects of essential oils misused by essential oil consumers who are not aware of the risks they’re taking. I.e. drug interactions, contraindications for existing health conditions, age appropriate use, etc.
